“Aside from writing some very good crime novels, Christopher G. Moore shows some real insight into interpersonal relationships, power, family, loyalty and, strangely, the disciplined schedule of a masturbating monkey. It's astounding that this is one of his very early works. He only gets better over time.”
—Dharma Bum (Amazon reviewer)
“Moore has written a wonderful time capsule of this roller coaster, crash and burn period [of 1997 economic crisis in Thailand]. If [you] want to know what goes on behind those high walls in those expensive Bangkok neighborhoods while getting a good thriller of a ride then read GOD OF DARKNESS.”
—Kevin Cummings, Chiang Mai City News
