Ally Tasker is trapped in a dead-end teaching job and a relationship that's going nowhere. Her dreams of a fulfilling life after art college didn't include cleaning up after bored school children and being a doormat for her yuppie boyfriend. What she really wants is to be more like her friend Meg - at least she has turned her art training into a lucrative job in computer design, not to mention having a doting husband and a gorgeous baby son to complete the package. But when Ally's grandfather and sole relative dies, she returns to the Southern Highland home of her childhood where she must confront painful issues from her past that her safe life in the city has allowed her to ignore. Meanwhile, Meg is not as happy as Ally imagines. Dissatisfied with her picture-perfect life, a restless Meg longs to inject more passion and spontaneity into her days - but at what cost to her family's happiness?

A Carousel is a fairground ride that takes you round in circles… and brings you back to where you started. And the Bangkok Carousel? A never-ending ride to find a girl to get me over Kodi. But no matter who – or what – or where I found one, the Bangkok Carousel always carried me back towards Kodi. So who was Kodi? Easy answer: Kodi was the only girl I really wanted. What happened? If you work your way through the September editions of the Bangkok Times, you’ll find a couple of lines about a Wednesday evening in Soi Rambuttri when a young Thai girl was stabbed on the steps of the Tulip Tree… True: it happened. But by Persons Unknown? Not a chance! We knew exactly who had done it. But by the time they’d started the man-hunt, Zakrov and his crew had long-since vanished into the Golden Triangle… Forget all that. Zakrov and his crew would have to wait for another day. Right now, it was time for me to vanish into the green, green hills of Glen Rowan and decide how best to fix that heroin-pushing Romanian. But then my cell-phone purred with an incoming text message. It was four words long. I’d no idea who sent it. But someone was telling me to Never Give Up Hope! Did that mean she was still alive…?

The Lady is Aung San Suu Kyi, the democratically elected leader of Burma who's never been allowed to hold power. The military junta that has ruled the troubled country since 1962 has limited her contact with the outside world especially after she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Now, in 2002, she is given qualified release from house arrest. Sloan Walcott is determined to meet her. He has something to deliver. Part-time smuggler, part-time art dealer and full-time rogue, Wolcott is a prominent resident of Bangkok's notorious expat community. The promise of quick money draws him to the Burmese capital, a city under siege from within. There he comes into possession of a camera belonging to a Japanese newspaper reporter killed in a suspicious car crash. The camera is loaded. Inside is one image of Suu Kyi riding in an automobile with a bullet hole in the rear window as reminder of the government-organized mob that attacked her in 1996. Another shows a seductive young woman with a singular tattoo. The dead journalist's father makes Wolcott promise to deliver the first photograph to Suu Kyi personally and cautions him not to become obsessed with the figure in the other one. The pledge proves difficult to keep and the warning difficult to heed. Waiting for the Lady is a vivid novel of political and personal intrigue that draws on today's news and the author's fabled knowledge of the region. It is full of passion and heartache, laced with an intimate understanding of Southeast Asia's human and physical geography. Its descriptions of Rangoon and of the Burmese countryside far to the north call to mind George Orwell and Graham Greene. What they did for their times, Christopher G. Moore does for ours.

In Bangkok, Thailand, an American travel journalist and his Thai family find themselves inadvertently entangled in a web of dirty cops and far-reaching corruption when their daughter’s ill-gotten cell phone displays photographs of some very crooked cops, all of them thoroughly dead. Poke Rafferty is happier than he's ever been. He's financially solvent, his family is about to grow larger, and his adopted Thai daughter, Miaow, seems to have settled in at junior high school. All that is endangered when Miaow and her boyfriend, Andrew, buy a stolen iPhone from a shady vendor and discover photographs of two dead police officers on it—disgraced officers, violently murdered to avenge the long-dead. Surrounding the murder investigation is a conspiracy that reaches the highest reaches of Bangkok law enforcement, and perhaps beyond. It soon becomes apparent that Miaow's discovery threatens the entire family—and if that's not enough, in order to survive, they may ultimately have to depend on someone who, in the past, has already betrayed them.
