Poke Rafferty had written two “rough travel” books – Looking for Trouble in the Philippines and Looking for Trouble in Indonesia – when he arrived in Thailand to write the next one.
And Thailand – especially Bangkok – changed his life forever.
Now married to the former “queen” of the Patpong bars, Rose, with whom he's adopted a daughter off the sidewalks, Miaow, Rafferty finds family life in Bangkok to be more of an adventure than rough travel ever was. But, after years of travel, he's also in the process of finding his heart and his personal true North.
The books are thrillers, but they're also the continuing story of a hand-made family trying to stay together against all the odds.
The series has received the best reviews of my life, has been on numerous Ten Best lists, and is translated into five languages.
