Sonchai is a detective with the Royal Thai police. The setting is the seamy side of Bangkok. John Burdett's hilarious writing makes his books fun.

The book is very well written. Ms. Ali presents an interesting take on the Islamic way of life in Africa and Saudi Arabia and on fundamental Islam. She also offers some considerations to the debate about the assimilation of minorities in any culture. It is truly worth reading to hear those views.

This book is primarily about Phoebe Damrosch's training and experience working at Per Se, Thomas Keller's New York restaurant. There's not a whole lot of eavesdropping, so if you're looking for something gossipy, this really isn't it. Dedicated foodies will love it.
