A late-night poker game in Bangkok nets American ex-pat writer Poke Rafferty the "opportunity" to write the biography of Khun Pan, a flamboyant, vulgar, self-made billionaire with a criminal past and far-reaching political ambitions. Within hours, Rafferty, his wife, Rose, their adopted daughter, Miaow, and Poke's best friend, honest Bangkok cop Arthit, have become disposable pawns in a brutal power struggle among some of Thailand's richest, most ruthless citizens.
There are those who would go to any length to ensure the book is never written and others equally desperate to have Pan's darkest secrets exposed. Suddenly, Rafferty is sinking deeper in a perilous sea of treachery and intrigue - and caught up in the inhuman machinations of an Asian baby-selling ring - as he searches frantically for the only chance he may have to get everyone he loves out alive.
"Cleverly crafted, masterfully written, characters and dialogue rooted in reality, Breathing Water offers fascinating insights into the dark side of crime in another culture. Written with the authority of one who knows life on the hard edge in southeast Asia. Another wonderful read from an author who knows his business." (Steve Martini)
