A contemporary murder set in Bangkok-a neighbor and friend, a young ex-hooker turned artist, is found dead by an American millionaire's minor wife. Her rich expat husband hires Calvino to investigate. While searching for the killer in exclusive clubs and not-so-exclusive bars of Bangkok, Calvino discovers that a minor wife-mia noi-has everything to do with a woman's status. From illegal cock fighting matches to elite Bangkok golf clubs, Calvino finds himself caught in the crossfire as he closes in on the murderer.

About the Author:

Christopher G. Moore is a Canadian author of 22 novels, a non-fiction, one collection of interlocked short stories, and one book on Thai language. Oxford-educated, Moore was a law professor at the University of British Columbia for 10 years. His first book His Lordship's Arsenal was published in New York to a critical acclaim in 1985, when he decided to become a full-time writer.

Moore moved to Thailand in 1988 and from Bangkok continued to write literary and commercial fiction. He has attained somewhat of a cult status among his readers in Asia and Europe and has an increasingly strong following in North America. Moore is probably best known by his cult classics, Land of Smiles Trilogy, his behind-the-smiles study of his adopted country, Thailand, and his highly popular Vincent Calvino Private Eye series.

Review:

"What distinguishes Christopher G. Moore from other foreign authors setting their stories in the Land of Smiles is how much more he understands its mystique, the psyche of its populace and the futility of its round residents trying to fit into its square holes."--The Bangkok Post

"Moore's books are full of vivid characterization--also rich in wonderful tidbits of insider knowledge."--Vancouver Sun

"Go and read Minor Wife this latest Calvino book. Great writing, great story and a great read. Get it, your will not be disappointed."--Pattaya Mail

"Moore's attention to details and 3-D characterization make Minor Wife much more than another crime novel."--Farang Magazine
