Killer Karma
4.1 stars over 8 reviews

Price: 5.99 0.99

Description: For the past seven months, every full moon night has brought eerie sightings of ghostly heads bobbing on the surface of the sea. An excited throng of people are gathering each month to witness the grisly spectacle at Wat Phloi, a tiny monastery on the coast of Chanthaburi province in Central Thailand.

Father Ananda, an urban monk and former police officer, is summoned from his Bangkok temple to investigate. His search for an explanation is complicated and severely threatened by the escalating polarization within the community around the destruction of the mangroves by fishing trawlers. Are the ghostly heads a divine warning or a desperate plea for help by environmentalists trying to stop the destruction of their traditional fishing grounds?

As always, Jak, the former temple boy, now a novice, accompanies Father Ananda on his intrepid investigations in this third episode of the Father Ananda mystery series.

Praise for the Father Ananda series:

"A gripping read peppered with fascinating insights into the day to day life of a Buddhist monk. Nick Wilgus's Mindfulness and Murder puts a new spin on an old genre." -- UNTAMED TRAVEL MAGAZINE

"Wilgus ... has a good fix on temple boys, the precepts of Buddhism, the jaundiced eye with which the populace regards the constulabary, the vendors, the weather, the air pollution." -- BANGKOK POST on Garden of Hell

"Nick Wilgus' first novel is great. May Buddha protect Father Ananda and send him many other exciting adventures." Livres Hebdo
