Eating Smoke by Chris Thrall book review

Eating Smoke: One Man's Descent Into Drug Psychosis in Hong Kong's Triad Heartland

Chris Thrall left the Royal Marines to find fortune in Hong Kong, but following a bizarre series of jobs ended up homeless and addicted to crystal methamphetamine. He began working for the 14K, one of Hong Kong’s notorious crime syndicates, as a nightclub doorman in the Wan Chai red-light district. Dealing with psychosis, conspiracy and the ‘foreign triad’ — a secretive expat clique that works hand-in-hand with the Chinese mafia — he had to survive in the world’s most unforgiving city, addicted to the world’s most dangerous drug . . .


WOW!!  What a great book. Very well written and this book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions.  I was hooked from the very beginning of this book.  I admit that when I was asked to do a review for this book I was worried I would not like it because it is not the usual genre of books that I read but I am so glad I got the chance to read and review this one. I highly recommend this.

If you want to purchase this book you find it in or most stores like Chapters.
