The Cambodian Book of the Dead Launch at The Big Green Bookshop in London

CBOTD-launch1

The London launch of my new thriller The Cambodian Book of the Dead went off beautifully, with lots of old friends and new readers showing up to my reading. Thanks to everyone who turned up!

Commissioning editor Emlyn Rees from Exhibit A Books did the best introduction I’ve ever had and the Q&A was interesting. Thanks to Emlyn, Caroline Lambe and The Big Green Bookshop.

Here’s the round-up of the event.

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.
