An Interview with Crime Thriller Author Frank Hurst

People Things Literature

“Graham Greene and George Orwell have been very inspirational. The lines are so simple but so descriptive at all sorts of levels. My love of the Far East has been a reoccurring theme and so I found Orwell’s first book “Burmese Days” brilliant to read – tragic and politically very thought provoking, and Greene’s “The Quiet American” set in 1950s Vietnam is simply wonderful. I modelled Mike Rawlin on the central character in that book to some extent.” Frank Hurst – author of the Mike Rawlin Crime Thriller Trilogy

Why I Love Thailand By Frank Hurst

I was very lucky that my work took me to Thailand in the mid-80s. We were investigating Howard Marks (Mr Nice) at the time and my office needed someone to see what he was up to in Bangkok. Bangkok simply blew me away. The juxtaposition of chaotic city, tranquil Buddhist temples, belching exhausts and the wonderful smell of spicy street food was a heady mix.

‘The Postmistress of Nongkhai’ Leaves Us Wanting

The Phuket News
8 July 2016

The topic of smuggling premium drugs from South and Southeast Asia during the latter half of the 20th century has been the basis for several good reads – non-fiction, fiction and a handful of titles that mix a little bit and a whole lot of both.

A tale of passion, deception and intrigue set in London and Thailand against a backdrop of the dangerous world of international drug smuggling may seem like the stuff of thrillers.

The War on Drugs

Bangkok Post

Drugs are a trillion-dollar business and the so-called War on Drugs is under-financed. So much is paid to the powers that be to turn a blind eye that those who fight the good fight deserve the credit they get when busting a drug ring.

Jan 2016

Mike Rawlins' rise through the ranks in the investigation department of Customs and Excise has been steady, culminating in his dream posting: attachment to the British Embassy, Thailand. It gets even better when he realises a name from his past is also operating out of the country on the other side of the law. Mike's attempts to nail him over the years have become personal and now, thanks to local informant or 'Postmistress' Lek, prosecution is a possibility. What Mike doesn't realise is the cost the chase will exact… not yet anyway.
