John Burdett's Bangkok series, featuring Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep, has a reputation for being simultaneously morbid and witty. In Vulture Peak, Sonchai is tasked with ending human organ trafficking in Thailand. Before long he's wrapped up with a cast of characters that includes a washed-up rock star and a pair of Chinese twins known as the Vultures. And to complicate matters even further, Sonchai must also battle his ever-increasing suspicions that his ex-prostitute wife may be having an affair.

"Stephen Hogan cleverly narrates this intriguing thriller, which takes place in the bizarre underworld of Bangkok. As Royal Thai Police Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep untangles the mysterious events at the breathtaking ocean view mansion called Vulture Peak, he describes the charms of Thailand and the splendors of Buddhism with serenity and a touch of sarcasm. Hogan employs disdainful yet articulate patience as Jitpleecheep explains Eastern perspectives to the Western listener. The detective's eccentric intelligence becomes increasingly evident as he explores the twisted black market for human organs. Hogan adds a touch of admiration when voicing Jitpleecheep's description of the stunningly beautiful but astonishingly self-indulgent Chinese twins who are at the center of the body-parts industry.
