Devil's Place by Brian Gomez
This is what a nerd would do. Making a review for a book he read. The books was as the post title says.
Its a book about terrorist, politics, prostitution and such happening in Kuala Lumpur. A story about crime investigation. Not much of an investigation, its much of a story about a person who was suspected of killing his friends but was actually done by Malaysia's Number One Wanted.
It was an interesting book, nicely plotted. Very creative indeed but seems too fictional. Too much coincidences. I can say the writer is a genius. Could be as good as J.K. Rowling. But J.K. Rowling plotted the whole thing for seven books. This story was nicely plotted in one book only.
This is the first book the writer ever published, and probably the last, we don't know about the future right.
If you are a Malaysian, I highly recommend this book to you because the content of the story is highly related to what happening in Malaysia just that its only fictional.
Don't worry about the grammar or vocabulary though, a stupid person like me could finish it in one day. Really a good novel only it burnt my father wallet of RM 34.90 from MPH bookstore.
By the way, his blog thefloatingturd is available at the Public Blog at your right.
