Breathing Water Characters Å 102 O 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 babyselling ring as he searches frantically for the only chance he may have to get everyone he loves out alive. From ISawLightningFallcomThe thriller gets a bad rap in the larger literary world Scattered at every supermarket checkout lane filled with bad guys and bullets and typically read at a pace faster than a runaway Ferrari such pulpy offerings are often viewed as the consummate guilty pleasure something with which to fritter away an afternoon at the beach and toss when you re through Only horror ranks lower in popular genre pantheon but it has Stoker and Shelley to prop up its pedigree It s a shame because a number of authors have used the humble thriller not only to excite audiences but also to address big themes and do so with fine prose Consider for example Timothy Hallinan s Breathing WaterPoke Rafferty doesn t do danger for his day job Sure he lives in Bangkok not exactly the safest city in the world But he writes tour books and the occasional topical tome Which is how he came to be sitting in this poker game with his police friend Arthit a conman named Tip and a rigged hand of cards It s all supposed to be fodder for his latest book Bilk a few unsuspecting businessmen return their cash when it s over and net an interesting premise Only no one expected thuggish billionaire Khun Pan to join the game Outraged over the deception Pan challenges Poke to a private game with higher stakes If Poke loses he ll get run out of the county if Pan does he ll let him pen his biography an honor denied to scores of other writers Guess who ends up with the winning hand and a killer book deal Not long after that though the phone calls start unidentified people threatening Poke s family if he finishes the project and if he doesn t Now Poke has to discover what secret elevated a one time crook like Pan into the pantheon Thailand s eliteBreathing Water contains all of the reuite genre nods such as imminent danger at every turn and a plot twistier than a Kansas tornado But it plumbs depths by naturally melding Poke s peril with commentary on Thai politics and ethnic tensions Also Hallinan can turn a phrase until it spins like a top employing unexpected similes and tongue in cheek humor Awakened at an ungodly hour Poke wraps himself in his robe as though it were a grievance One of Pan s associates snaps at the writer in a voice like a pair of tin snips And when Poke expresses incredulity at a chortling gang of thugs Did somebody teach all you guys to chuckle the ringleader replies The chuckle is a perfectly acceptable form of laughter Hard edged and humorous fierce and finely written Water is refreshingly good
