Sonchai Jitpleecheep

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.
