Monica wants to be loved like all the other pretty girls in Bangkok. But sometimes getting what you want isn't healthy. Her body is discovered decapitated in her cold-water apartment room. A case holding an ancient black magic spell is missing from the scene.
Joe Dylan ventures into the Bangkok City bars. The detective follows a trail leading to Demon Dreams, a Bangkok S&M joint run by a beautiful transsexual and her mentally deranged brother. Joe discovers a world of bizarre nocturnal acts and black magic rituals. It's a seedy Bangkok underworld that picks-up fallen women from the streets and throws them into an evil world of torture and murder.
Step into the Red Night Zone: Bangkok City, the sequel to Newman's neo-noir pulp thriller Bangkok Express.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This is a truly bizarre mystery dealing with dark sex magic and the secrets in the dark alleys of Bangkok..PI Joe Dylan, knew there was something strange going on, but did not anticipate this strange and dangerous world! Really interesting and well worth a listen!!!
I am an avid reader and listener of horror and thrillers with the occasional SciFi and crime noir. I review on Amazon, GR, NG & Audible.
My second foray into the world of P.I. Joe Dylan and James A. Newman’s, Bangkok Noir. Evidently I am incapable of reading (listening) to these in order, because I seem to be doing it backwards, but these stories are more than strong enough to stand on their own.
A private investigator is hired to look into the apparent suicide of a local working girl who may have been wrapped up in something sinister inside the Red Night Zone. To find the truth he must not only battle his own personal demons, but he must take on a group of powerful forces inside the private and popular sex club - Demon Dreams.
Nicholas Patrella once again nails the story with his excellent narration. His voice is in my head now and I will never be able to read a Joe Dylan tale without it in the background. (That’s a good thing, btw) A very good story with a very well done reading. Recommended for anybody who likes their noir, dark and gritty.
*I was provided an audible review copy of this title from the narrator in exchange for an honest review. This was it.
