RARA-AVIS: Bangkok 8

Finished this a few days ago. It started out decent and tapered down to mediocre. I grew tired of the continuous exposition on the differences between Thai and American thinking. Although I didn't know the solution to the mystery, I did know exactly what the protagonist was going to do about it very early on. Another problem I had was that all the characters alternated between tough and in-control and marshmallow, depending on what the plot called for at the moment. And the detail of the crime concerning the difficulty of drugging the snakes turned into a red herring. The ending was cutesy.

It wasn't really bad, but I'm not onboard for the next.
