The Cambodian Book of the Dead – Interview @ OzNoir

On the Shelf

I have been talking to Josh at OzNoir/ Just A Guy Who Likes To Read about The Cambodian Book of the Dead and Cambodia.

Read the full interview here.

About The Cambodian Book of the Dead:

Private eye and former war reporter, Maier is sent to Cambodia to track down the missing heir to a Hamburg coffee empire.

His search leads him into the darkest corners of the country’s history, through the Killing Fields of the communist revolution, to the White Spider, a Nazi war criminal who reigns over an ancient Khmer temple deep in the jungle.

But the terrifying tale of mass murder that Maier uncovers is far from over. And soon Maier realises that, if he is to prevent more innocent lives from being destroyed, he will have to write the last horrific chapter himself.
