    This was a solid fast moving story with some interesting twists along the way The story is set in Thailand and the author obviously knows the country and its culture very well The title Noble Lies comes from Thai culture, where it is better to provide an answer, even if it is wrong, rather than not provide any answer and admit you don t know The narrator was excellent and added to my enjoyment of the book.

    Kind of an interesting location Thailand and Malaysia for a thriller Perhaps the story gets a little weak towards the end with the hero conquers all type finish of most thrillers Up to the end our hero showed remarkable gullible streak and a just a little stupidity for a true John Wayne type.

    Thailand, tsunami,gangsters and pirates, cool Mrk, Robin, Pim, Jarin and the mystery guy were all good characters that moved this mystery along Even the bad guys were likable.If you ever read about Anna and the king of Siam you ll feel comfortable learning thatlife in the back streets hasn t changed much since the 1860s.


  6. Lois Lois says:

    The Thai woman a little too Wise Asian although I agreed with her the hero a shade too gullible for someone with his background the ending very tidily delivered with a bow.Good narrator.


  7. Kae Cheatham Kae Cheatham says:

    This was a matter of setting for me The story was shaping up OK, but I didn t like the setting.


  8. Susan Susan says:

    An interesting book with some interesting twists I am not sure if I bought how naive Mark was, but then his hormones might have initially been clouding his judgement.


  9. Scott Scott says:

    Really enjoyed this book The characters don t stand out as much as the locations do odd but it is expected of Benoit s books, he makes the locations come alive.


  10. Cheryl Cheryl says:

    The plot of this book someone takes advantage of a disaster to disappear centers on an idea we have all considered There are some satisfying plot twists and turns that caught me unaware.
