Pattaya Undercover will to be released soon!

Publisher: Monsoon Books Ltd, Leicester, UK
No. of pages: 254

Promising sun, sea, sand and more, Pattaya beach resort in Thailand lures eight million foreign tourists annually. However, behind the glitter lurk broken dreams, ethereal ecstasy and, often, tragedy. And behind every bargirl’s smile and every foreigner's beer glass lurks a story: happy, touching, heart-wrenching.

The author interviews bargirls, mamasans and customers who reveal true stories of  sex scams, doomed relationships and tragic suicides. The author’s investigation takes  him to the capital, Bangkok, as well as to an Isaan village in northeastern Thailand, and further afield to Saigon in Vietnam  and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. He returns to Pattaya  with a warning: You enter the manipulative world of the Pattaya bargirls at your own risk!

What’s this novel about?
In Kuala Lumpur, Su Liu-Shan volunteers to become a Burma Road driver when Japan blockades China’s ports in 1939. She goes to Singapore for training, meets fellow driver Kwong Eng-Liang who has a dark side and romance sparks.  

During a journey in Yunnan, an accident injures Liu-Shan when her truck is attacked by Japanese planes, and she is sent back to Malaya. Meanwhile, Eng-Liang hatches a plan to make fast money in Kunming and to return to Kuala Lumpur.  In 1942, Japan invades Malaya. Liu-Shan rescues British pilot Timothy Clarke when his fighter plane is shot down over Kuala Lumpur.

Later, Liu-Shan is kidnapped to become a comfort woman and Captain Kasuki Fukuda of the Kempeitai becomes her main rapist. She escapes and, fueled by revenge, joins the resistance. Unbeknown to her, Eng-Liang has joined the Kempeitai for personal reasons. In the resistance camp, Liu-Shan once again meets Timothy Clarke who woos her with the same fervour as Captain Kasuki courts Candice Chan, a striptease dancer who’s a spy for the guerillas.

A trail of seduction, espionage and torture culminates in blood and dead bodies when Liu-Shan is sent to assassinate the head of the Japanese Military Administration. In the climax, she crosses path with Captain Kasuki, Timothy and Eng-Liang. 

Will Liu-Shan succeed in her mission? Will Eng-Liang choose love for Liu-Shan or loyalty to the Japanese? Will Timothy die for Liu-Shan? Will Captain Kasuki meet his just deserts?

"Don't look down on Filipinas and Vietnamese women!" says Paulina Phuar. "Not all are maids and bargirls!"

“In Malaysia, mention a Filipina, one often thinks of a maid; mention a Vietnamese woman, one often thinks of a bargirl or a massage lady,” says PR consultant Paulina Phuar (pix above). “However, according to a report released by Grant Thornton International, Pinays and Vietnamese women rank first and second respectively in Asia in terms of presence in senior management in their home countries. So flush your stereotyping about Pinays and Viet Cong dolls together with your used condoms down the toilet. ”
