"In its refinement and pensiveness, and with its masterful fly-on-the-wall dialogue, the novel [Jumpers] owes more to Joseph Conrad than the likes of Mickey Spillane or Dashiell Hammett." 

 

—Paul Dorsey, The Nation (Thailand)

“Christopher G. Moore has long been a big name in crime for his Vincent Calvino books, based on the exploits of an American private eye in Thailand's seedy underbelly.”

Jonathan Gibbs, The Independent

Reviews

”Moore's Vincent Calvino novels ... are crisp, atmospheric entertainments set in a noirish Bangkok.”

Guardian

“Moore is an idealist and a lone warrior who doesn't hesitate to get his hands dirty.... Those who have travelled to Southeast Asia will be captivated by his ability to recreate the atmosphere.”
