Tough and cynical as Joe Dylan thinks he is, he still finds himself more than a litt!e in love with the beautiful hooker, the 'neon ballerina', Monica.
When she is found brutally murdered he starts searching through the seedier sex streets of Bankok and especially the frightening exclusive club, the Demon Dreams.
Told mostly in the first person present, this book has all of the noir attributes and Nicholas Patrella's narration enhances this as he becomes the voice of Joe. His performance is perfect noir, clipped, clear, sarcastic and cynical plus the other characters are given voices of their own. There are, however, a couple of edifying glitches with repeated sentences in chapters 7, 23 and 25, with a whole paragraph re-read in chapter 12.
Red Night Zone is a dark, standalone story prying into the underbelly of Bankok society and including a form of Black magic. I just admit to losing track of the story at one point, though it didn't seem to much diminish my enjoyment of the book as a whole as the excellent narration carried me through.. However, I did prefer White Flamingo, the 3rd in this series, also read by Mr.Patrella.
An enjoyable noir.
My thanks to the rights holder who voluntarily gifted me a complimentary copy of Red Night Zone, at my request, via Audiobook Boom..

What about Nicholas Patrella’s performance did you like?
He makes many characters come alive in your mind.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No...... but the imagery of the unique nature of Bangkok and how it represents the mosttawdry nature of modern civilization.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This is a truly bizarre mystery dealing with dark sex magic and the secrets in the dark alleys of Bangkok..PI Joe Dylan, knew there was something strange going on, but did not anticipate this strange and dangerous world! Really interesting and well worth a listen!!!
