I need to start by saying that it is a rare occurrence that I give any book 5 stars I am pretty critical when it comes to characters details and errors in proofreading This book truly deserves the ratingWhile some readers should be warned of the explicit and sensitive content the author did a very good job with the storyline but I m not easily offended In my opinion the shock value was needed to put the reader in a mindset the author wants you to be in in order to lovehate the potential criminalsheroes The story was never too farfetched as a lot of books I ve read lately have been The characters were wonderfully and vividly created Being that this is the first book in a series the only disappointment I had was the last page when all of my uestions weren t answered and one of the characters was missing I ordered the rest of the series onto my Kindle and I realized that this had become an addictive story and I wanted to make sure I got my fix

It s interesting that there aren t mysteries starring travel writers They have far ualifications than most literary amateur detectives they re experienced travelers know how to get around in foreign places perhaps know the language and customs dip in and out of cultures and can get the locals to talk to themPoke Rafferty the somewhat tarnished protagonist of A Nail Through the Heart is all this He s also an expat busily putting down roots in Bangkok Since in novels Bangkok is seediness made concrete it s little wonder Poke gets sucked into all manner of bad behaviorTwo women grease the skids for Poke s slide into the demimonde an Australian searching for her beloved disappeared uncle and a disturbing old woman looking for an envelope that s been stolen from her Each promises some amount of money to the perpetually broke Poke with the inevitable caveat that he survives long enough to spend it Our Hero then plunges into two cases that would you believe it are dirtier and complicated than they seemedPoke has all the makings of a sad sack detective but isn t He was reasonably competent in his previous vocation his Looking for Trouble in series sold well and prepared him for his new line of work has a loving makeshift family in Rose a former bar dancer and Miaow a street urchin he s trying to adopt and is able to maintain normal human relationships both personal and professional without becoming an addict or otherwise wallowing in dysfunction All this makes him better than average company as he leads us through many of the less tourist friendly parts of Bangkok on his clients business While he can fire off a uip or two when needed he s not prone to the relentless wiseassery that s made other stories like this a chore to get throughWhile a couple of the main secondary characters are types most are provided with actual personalities motives and behaviors that effectively portray the characters inner humanity Rose Miaow and Superman a street kid Miaow guilts Poke into trying to save are especially effective the author is good at portraying the outward presentation of internal traumaI came to this book the first in a series via the author s Junior Bender series which is lighter in tone but otherwise bears a family resemblance They share the same solid character building the deft descriptions that sketch rather than paint and a steady hand with keeping the multiple A and B plots going without dropping too many balls Junior narrates his own stories while Nail is told in third person POV providing room to let the narrative roam The cases generally make sense and come to sensible organic ends There s violence some rather icky but mostly offstage child pornography and the historical pornography of the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia subjects far weightier than those Junior has to grapple withAny book series portraying crime in Thailand has to deal with a large Asian elephant in the room John Burdett s Sonchai Jitpleecheep series featuring a Thai police detective adrift in a riotously corrupt Bangkok Nail is nothing like Burdett s novels in either tone or outlook You can decide for yourself whether that s good or badWith all this goodness where s the fifth star Poke is much capable with the rough stuff than we have any explanation to support He also seems to get around and fit in easily than I d expect for someone in his position there s little of the feeling of otherness that plays such a major role in Jitpleecheep s mindset and colors his relations with the farang The motives of the two major villains are largely unexplored something that stands out because most everyone else s motives are clearly portrayed None of this is fatal except to that dead fifth star A Nail Through the Heart is a fast satisfying series debut that introduces an interesting and well rounded lead character in an eually interesting milieu If you like this there are seven waiting for you at the other end The cost of entry is especially low if you re already a Hallinan fan If you re not this is as good a way to discover him as any
