it was amazing
Read in January, 2012

So I came home last night after making a few extra post-retirement buck dealing poker at a company party exhausted. It was nearly 11pm, several hours past my normal bedtime and I was faced with one of life's impossible choices. Fall into bed and begin snoring immediately, or finish THE FOURTH WATCHER, another of Tim Hallinan's addictive as pistachio nuts Bangkok thriller. Guess which I chose. I finished about 1am and realized I'd never be able to sleep with his adrenaline-juiced climax, bigger than life characters and humidity-dripping corrupt-to-the-core city imprinted on my mind screen. I finally drifted off after pondering the themes Hallinan handles so well: the true meaning of family; the nature of evil and the polka-dotted elephant in our personal closet, our past. Timothy Hallinan writes a thinking person's page-turner and I for one can't wait to read the next one.
