Christopher G. Moore: Zero Hour in Phnom Penh (Thailand 2005)
From the Publisher:
Bangkok private eye, Vincent ("Vinee") Calvino and Thai Police Lieutenant-Colonel Prachai Congwatana ("Pratt") are in Phnom Penh. Vinee has the knack of finding people who don't want to be found. And a Bangkok client has hired him to find a drifter who has gone underground in Cambodia. Lt.Col. Pratt has come along on a secret mission of his own. They end up searching for the same man.
Phnom Penh and the UNTAC Civ Pol operation form a dramatic backdrop to this fast-paced story in which Christopher Moore demonstrates his skill at creating a totally believable world in which horror, death, humor and tenderness can co-exist.
