The Vampire of Siam By Jim Newport
Wealthy expat Martin Larue has made Bangkok his home. Jaded and bored, he dabbles in journalism. After his editor sends him on a “ride along” with the police, Martin uncovers evidence of a serial killer in the City of Angels. His subsequent article is front-page news, and leads to a visit from the murderer himself, a 150 year old charming vampire – Ramonne Delacroix.
Ramonne is sophisticated and worldly. In Martin he finds a kindred spirit, and an unlikely bond is formed. Intoxicated by the vampire's powers, Martin is on the verge of crossing to the dark side himself. Ultimately he learns a lesson in the preciousness of life's every moment - from a most unlikely source – a vampire.
