You may read a book review of The White Flamingo by James A. Newman from Thailand Footprint, as published by Chiang Mai City News by clicking the banner below:
Here is the description as shown on Amazon.com:
FUN CITY is run by corrupt officials and respectable gangsters wallowing in luxury mansions in the hills high above the harbour, the beach, and the neon jungle.
When vice worker TAMMY is found mutilated on top of a pool table, an effete pervert, and son to the 1970′s pin-up beauty queen once known as THE WHITE FLAMINGO, is locked up.
Can Detective JOE DYLAN find THE KILLER before he becomes one of the hunted?
THE WHITE FLAMINGO is a break-neck noir crime thriller from beak to tail feather.
The White Flamingo is third in the Joe Dylan Private Investigator Noir Crime Series. The second was Red Night Zone, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The first in the series was Bangkok Express, which showed flashes of brilliance and the promise of future good work by James A. Newman.
Newman began writing fiction when he came out of rehab. He was addicted to pulp fiction. There was no cure. Before that he played guitar and sang in neu-gazer bands in London. Newman moved to Bangkok in the year 2001 and began writing fiction. He lived in ten dollar hotel rooms and survived on chemical whiskey and raw luck. Newman has published over fifty short stories in various publications all over the world; most recently for Big Pulp Magazine. He has been included in many anthologies. His novel BANGKOK EXPRESS appeared in 2010. The sequel RED NIGHT ZONE was published shortly after. A collection of his short stories THAILAND AFTER DARK document his short story ventures. Other titles include LIZARD CITY a pulp horror novella – THE WHITE FLAMINGO, widely considered his best novel, published by Spanking Pulp Press 2013, and the novel ITCHY PARK – 2014 with Blood Moon Press. His interests include noir fiction, crime, sex, jazz, beer Leo, Charles Bukowski, and traveling around on Bangkok buses dreaming about the oncoming apocalypse. If this aint enough Newman is also a playwright, screenwriter, publisher, editor, director, and live musician, plus whips up the odd interview.
Keep posted to Thailand Footprint as we hope to bring you an interview with Mr. Newman soon.
