It is 1967 Bangkok, the Summer of Love, and for teenager Jon Cole, son of a US Green Beret colonel serving in the Vietnam War, life as a young Westerner in the City of Angels is sweeter than mangoes on sticky rice with coconut milk ... until he is introduced to the infamous House of Lek. Drawn to the underbelly of Bangkok, the International School Bangkok pupil soon discovers ganja, opium and the two-dollar bordellos. What follows is a surreal but true story of one Westerner's relationship with Thailand spanning four decades. A drug habit picked up at the House of Lek with schoolmates and GIs on R&R from Vietnam leads to a career as a drug smuggler, a nasty smack habit and, ultimately, a long stretch inside Bangkok's notorious prison, the "Bangkok Hilton".

Awesome!

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It is written in a funny style that makes easy reading but tackles a thrilling, frightening subject which makes for a perfect read. This really gets deep into the subject of drug addiction and prison life in "Bankok Hilton". I really could not stop reading this book, and I don't think it would only appeal to True Crime fans. It doesn't read like your average True Crime book...but a bestseller.
