Timothy Hallinan is one of a group of writers who contribute to a blog called “Murder is Everywhere.” Each of them writes in a different country about that country’s problems and differing approach to crime solving. Hallinan’s country is Thailand and his protagonist is a travel writer named Poke Rafferty. Poke has married a former bar/go-go girl and they have adopted an orphan from the streets of Bangkok.
