Men have been coming to Thailand for many years now to enjoy the infamous night-life of cities like Pattaya, Bangkok and Phuket and to experience the girls that work in the thousands of bars around them. Some have found out to their cost that there are devils amongst the young women that ply their trade in the neon-lit forests of the country and others have been lucky enough to have discovered angels. Peter Jaggs has spent the best part of the past thirty years in Thailand and his previous books about the characters and locations on the seedier side of the streets of Thailand have reached best selling status in their respective categories on Amazon's lists as well as those of other distributors and have sold thousands of copies to date. His first work, 'From Beggar to Butterfly,' was described by the legendary Bernard Trink in a review in the Bangkok Post as one of the best books on Pattaya written. 'Thailand Bar-girls; Angels and Devils,' is in the same genre and written in very much the same style. During more than a quarter of a century in Pattaya the author has seen and heard many tales of true love, deception and even murder and death, with Thailand's bar-girls taking the part of the main players. This book contains the very best of them. Many of the stories are funny and others are heart-warming. Some are distressing and one or two are bizarrely insane. Once again, the author has produced another work that is a must-read for anyone intending to take a stroll down the bright lights of Thailand's night-streets and it will give those who read it an unparalleled insight into the world of the country's good-time girls and hookers that will prove invaluable for anybody planning a close encounter with Thailand's bar-girls, and the angels and devils amongst them.
 'Peter Jaggs is a highly skilled writer supremely confident in his craft' Daniel Schwartz, Pattaya Trader Magazine'Jaggs is a rare kind of ex-pat, not only relishing the atmosphere of Pattaya and its charming women but he can communicate the romantic ups and downs with a perfectly targeted common touch' Richard Ravensdale, Vice-President, Pattaya Expats Club

All of Peter’s books have reached best selling status in their respective categories on Amazon’s kindle website. Peter Jaggs also wrote the first ever technical guides in the English language ever published on freshwater fishing and metal detecting in Thailand (“A Freshwater Fisherman in Thailand’ and ‘Discovering Metal Detecting on a Thailand Beach’).Peter is currently based between Devon, England and Cha-am in Thailand and spends an equal amount of time in both of his homes, with frequent excursions to other favorite venues in Thailand and around Asia.

An interesting set of stories for your enjoyment. This was a great book to read and I found myself laughing. Daniel Schwartz, Pattaya Trader Magazine
