Tiger Lily of Bangkok in
Book Two -
Format: Kindle Edition
In the previous novel in this series, ‘Tiger Lily of Bangkok’, Author Owen Jones created the character of
Lily, a young Thai girl embarked on a mission to revenge her abuse as a child at the hands of adults. In
‘Tiger Lily of Bangkok in London’ his protagonist’s medical studies have taken her the United Kingdom’s
capital and it’s not long before Lily finds herself immersed in another crusade against the paedophile
rings she encounters. In this case, and in an interesting twist to the tale, she joins forces with a group
of young kids who have been similarly abused and helps them turn their lives around in the process.
This is an interesting novel on several levels. First there is a solid, fast-paced thriller as we follow
Lily’s progress in unmasking and delivering her fatal justice to those who prey on children. Then there is
the tale of redemption that the author presents through the way Lily interacts with the street gang that
she meets. It makes for an intriguing cocktail and elevates the novel to a category not often reached by
tales of deadly revenge.
An unusual and deep thriller. Recommended.
"Although I know that it is wrong to kill I can't
help but cheer Lily on--I wonder how many
actually would agree with me. You should enjoy
this sequel to Tiger Lily of Bangkok (see my
review here). I am hoping their will be a third
in this series!!"
