Police Colonel Vikorn is running for office on an anti-crime platform, targeting illegal organ transplants. When three dead bodies show up in a mansion in Phuket, with their organs and faces harvested, it's ready made for Vikorn's campaign. And he won't have to develop an organ transplant syndicate to crush (that was his original thought). It turns out a pair of gorgeous and psychotic Chinese twins from Hong Kong have already done that with huge financial success, with the help of General Zinna and some senior Chinese figures.

Chanya, Sonchai's partner, is finishing her sociology degree and having issues with her feminist advisor - wait till you see how that ends up. Sonchai's repeated trips to Phuket cause him and Chanya to be suspicious and jealous of one another. And the outside police help, Chan the bipolar cop from Hong Kong and Sun Bin, the Shanghai cop who dabbles in paranormal activities are both critical to unraveling of the murders at Vulture Peak, the transplant ring, and a serial rapist who has been terrifying women all over the city.

It'a another wonderful trip with the terrific writing that Burdett always provides.
