Dharma Bum reviewed God of Darkness
Christopher G. Moore is the real deal - August 21, 2015
Aside from writing some very good crime novels, Christopher G. Moore shows some real insight into interpersonal relationships, power, family, loyalty and, strangely, the disciplined schedule of a masturbating monkey. It's astounding that this is one of his very early works. He only gets better over time.

HRS reviewed Crackdown (Vincent Calvino Crime Novel Book 15)
Another great Vincent Calvino novel! - August 13, 2015
I eagerly wait for new Vincent Calvino books. This one did not disappoint. I particularly enjoy the way history and contemporary culture are linked in telling an exciting story that reveals so much about Thailand.

jimbo reviewed The Marriage Tree (Vincent Calvino Crime Novel Book 14)
Vincent Calvino does it again. - August 9, 2015
One of his best Calvino books. Never knew what was going to happen next. Well thought out & executed.

Aztravelers reviewed Crackdown (Vincent Calvino Crime Novel Book 15)
Up to date thriller - August 9, 2015
This may be the best Calvino yet. Thoroughly up to date and current in today's Bangkok, as well as the connected, social media world. Grounded with familiar characters, who continue to grow and change, and enhanced with complex new ones, it gives one real feeling of what it is like to live in the world of the Junta. The Pratt/Calvino dynamic will surprise readers familiar with the series and one has to wonder what's in store... Read More

Crackdown (15th in Vincent Calvino series)

In Crackdown visual art becomes a powerful take down tool to push back against the oligarchs. People adjust to the surveillance state and its agents who are emergent forces.




Author Christopher G. Moore evolves with Bangkok

During Thailand’s 2006 coup, dead bodies lay in Rama IV Road in Bangkok, right outside the swank apartment of Christopher G. Moore, one of Canada’s most famous expat writers. The next coup, in May 2014, didn’t affect him in such a direct and gruesome way, but the worsening repression under the current military government is certainly changing his writing.

Moore, who once taught condo law at UBC, has lived in Southeast Asia for 30 years and during that period has published 30-plus books. Fifteen of them have been police procedurals featuring his fictional creation Vincent Calvino, a disbarred lawyer turned PI, a character who’s especially popular with readers across East Asia and Western Europe.
