Robert Grieves: A 28-year-old teacher from England who is on his summer holiday. Although he wishes the vacation or holiday (as they call it in England) were permanent as he is restless and bored with his life.Robert goes from Thailand to Cambodia and with a bit of good luck wins $2000 at a casino. He wants to stay until his money runs out. Then comes along Simon Beauchamp, who arrives in Cambodia shortly after Robert. Simon is an American. Things happen and Simon out plays and out smarts poor Robert with alcohol and drugs. Soon Robert is  out of his winnings from the casino and passport.

It gets confusing a little bit because the author quickly jump characters and some of the passages were entirely dedicated to one character while others were a mixup of characters, saying things and doing things in just a few short sentences. I personally found it kind of distracting and hard to follow at times.

The first few chapters do move a bit slowly for my liking and that might risk losing a few readers, I almost gave up reading at one point. On the flipside the descriptions were very detailed and gave the dark almost brooding atmosphere to the book. As you get deeper and deeper into the book, The book gets better and better . I honestly liked this book. I like how the author wrapped everything up. I would say this is a psychological thriller with suspense I will keep you guessing until the very last page don’t give up on it just keep with it I recommend this book because of the unique story set in a foreign land.
