A Haunting Smile, the final novel in the Land of Smiles Trilogy, is a sharply observed picture interweaving documentary film technique and montage to convey the psychological horror, personal anguish and despair of the Black May of 1992 when students, workers, along with mobile phone carrying yuppies were massacred by the military on the streets of Bangkok. Robert Tuttle and George Snow, running at break neck speed down the back alleys, hope to find a safe passage out of the nightmare of killing.

I have been to Thailand 6 times. I am married to a Thai woman. Mr. Moore captures the culture, both whats good and whats not so good. His characters are deeply flawed and very human. I have read all three in the series and enjoyed them all. Thank you Sir for the hours of entertainment.

This was a challenging read. Cortez and the Aztecs mixed up with the military shootings in Bangkok of 1992 was fine but the end left me wondering. Still another good Christopher Moore take on how things work in Thailand. It is seriously complex as I have come to understand.

I have read all three of Christopher G. Moore's "Smiles" trilogy and enjoyed them all. Moore brings cultural awareness of Thailand, the best and the worst of it, and helps us laugh at and understand the worst of others and perhaps even, not the best traits of ourselves. The books do not have to read in order but I would start with A KILLING SMILE, which I enjoyed the best of the three. Good character development and if you have ever been to Bangkok or always wanted to go before you died read these books, then book your ticket before it's too late. Life is short. So many Christopher G. Moore books ... so little time.

One of the reasons that I like to read books with plots based in Thailand is they usually blend in elements of Thai psychology, Buddhism and culture. A haunting smile does a fairly good job at this. The main protagonist is mostly sympatheic and his mission is honorable. There is a dialog between two ghosts (Cortes and Montezuma) What? I know... - that runs throughout the narrative that I found distracting and really didn't add anything to plot. I read the whole book but was unfortunately uninspired.
