Christopher G. Moore's series starring Vincent Calvino, disbarred American lawyer turned Bangkok PI, comes to North America at long last with The Risk of Infidelity Index, a novel set in Bangkok.
When his surveillance of a major drug piracy ring ends in definitive evidence, it looks like Vincent Calvino's fortunes are about to turn. But when his client dies of a heart attack, and Calvino finds the body of a murdered massage girl, the authorities get suspicious of the farang in the wrong place at the wrong time. To make matters worse, with the dead man unlikely to pay, Calvino is desperate and forced to take on a job he doesn't want.
His new clients are three expat housewives who want him to trail their spouses. They've read "The Risk of Infidelity Index," a guide that ranks Bangkok as the city where husbands are most likely to stray, and they are haunted by the idea of their men in the notorious bars on Patpong and Soi Cowboy. Unfortunately for Calvino, jealous wives tend to be unhappy, regardless of the results, and drug pirates aren't the type to play nice.
