The Bangkok Betrayal

An extraordinary turn of events sees cab proprietor, Henry Gough propelled from the familiar streets of Victorian London into the grip of a stirring adventure, full of danger, political intrigue and ruthless treachery in faraway Siam.

When Henry becomes the only witness to the brutal murder of his passenger on one of London's richest avenues, he is given a clandestine mission to perform - one which will end on the banks of Bangkok's steamy Chao Phraya River. As he uncovers a sinister plot that will bring chaos to Siam, Henry draws ever closer to revealing the assassin's true identity, and is forced to confront powerful forces that threaten his own life.

As Britain and France's colonial ambitions clash inside the court of King Chulalongkorn, the scene is set for a bitter struggle that will decide the fate of Siam itself.

The Bangkok Betrayal is a breathtaking addition to the series of Henry Gough novels that began with The Peccavi Plot.

“While twists and turns abound, the story retains the authenticity for which Hurst's writing is so renowned.”

THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE TRILOGY

THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE TRILOGY

In his Golden Triangle Trilogy, Frank Hurst takes us into the treacherous and often violent world of late twentieth century global drugs smuggling. The stories follow the adventures of British intelligence officer Mike Rawlin as he struggles to capture Bartholomew Vanderpool, a dangerous and cruel international heroin trafficker. The books possess a unique authenticity, effortlessly steering the reader behind the scenes, including a fascinating and exhilarating journey from the steamy opium jungles of South East Asia to the chilly corridors of power in London where deception and conspiracy loom at every turn.

Passion, intrigue and duplicity provide a heady mix in these vivid stories woven together with an authenticity and knowledge of the international drugs scene few, if any, can match.

The Golden Triangle Trilogy

The first tale in the series The Postmistress of Nong Khai sees Rawlin, a much-respected agent of the Crown, fall for his bewitching informant, setting him on a path that could wreck his investigation and destroy his life. A spellbinding read about an officer on the edge – the edge of self-indulgence, the edge of legality and the edge of loyalty.

In the second novel, The Chiang Mai Assignment, after a period of enforced confinement and against the advice of many of his fellow officers, Rawlin is dispatched to the mountains and sweltering forests of northern Thailand. Here he accepts an offer from MI6 to help him trap his long-time adversary. But all is not what it seems and he finds himself locked into a three-way struggle from which there can only be one victor.

The final tale of the trilogy, Mekong Dragon, sees a reversal of roles as Mike Rawlin becomes the prey rather than the huntsman. When his nemesis decides to retaliate, Rawlin’s survival depends as much on his courage and ingenuity as on the loyalty of others.
