Great to finally get my hands on a copy of Nick Wilgus‘ first Father Ananda Mystery in Thai.
Thailand’s CJ Books have published Mindfulness & Murder, both in ebook and paperback format.
When a homeless boy living at the youth shelter run by a Buddhist monastery turns up dead, the abbot recruits Father Ananda, a monk and former police officer, to find out why.
Ananda discovers that all is not well at this urban monastery in the heart of Bangkok. Together with his dogged assistant, an orphaned boy named Jak, Father Ananda uncovers a startling series of clues that eventually expose the motivation behind the crime and lead him to the murderers.
