Everyone Burns by John Dolan was recommended to me by several friends. The story is about a British Private Investigator and counsellor David Braddock who lives in Thailand to make his money stretch further. Braddock is a very interesting, washed out and overall really great character whom to follow is hugely entertaining. Although he has marital problems and a lot of depth there is a dubious and not so serious side to him. Braddock gets asked by the police to assist in the investigation of a series of murders. At the time of this interview I’m putting final finishing touches to ‘Hungry Ghosts’, the second book in the ‘Time, Blood and Karma’ series. After that – and a short rest – I’ll be embarking on a co-writing project with author Fiona Quinn, getting the third novel in the series underway an. hatever else my fevered imagination comes up with in the meantime.

Everyone Burns is a detective novel. Everyone Burns is a detective novel. And although it lives up to many of the detective novels expectations (David Braddock, the detective protagonist is a somewhat cynical man who has seen everything, is a bit of a womaniser, smokes, has a bad opinion of the local cops, and keeps us entertained with a sometimes insightful, sometimes clueless, but always entertaining internal dialogue) it is by no means your usual.

It is January 2005, and the charred remains of two Europeans have been discovered on the Thai island of Samui.Local Police Chief Charoenkul, sidelined by his superiors, enlists the reluctant David Braddock, a burnt-out private detective, to assist in an 'unofficial' investigation.But Braddock has problems of his own, including his affair with the same Police Chief's wife ...Peppered with irreverent humour and some pithy comments on everyday life in the Land of Smiles, 'Everyone Burns' is much more than a crime novel. It is also a carefully-crafted psychological study of an anti-hero for our time.The 'Time, Blood and Karma' series will appeal to lovers of the following book categories: mystery, thriller, crime, Thailand fiction, private investigators, British detectives, and amateur sleuths.

I was particularly delighted with David Braddock's complex (and brilliantly flawed) relationships with the women in his life.

The first-person point of view is unabashedly intellectual; Braddock is a storyteller of a protagonist, taking the reader through the events of his life through the filter of a man who is literate, self-aware, kind, generous, coarse and full of human failings. In short, the best kind of man.

The resolution is satisfying without being obvious, with unexpected twists and timely reveals.

I am very much looking forward to the next novel in the series.

I think I like this book but actually, I'm not sure.

This was a different type of lead character, a man with his own moral compass and values. David: a sarcastic, brash-witted investigator who, in the end, imparted his own brand of justice. That part I liked, but at times, the book seemed to be all over the place and the story not focused.

SPOILER ALERT:
There was Buddhist philosophy and segments of the story which were deeply meaningful, offset by the characters constant lust and sexual desire, especially for Kat. With the exception of David, the other characters seemed less developed and the story just moved along in and out of different scenarios. And other than Bee, Da & Wayan, none of the other characters had any redeeming value. I have to admit, the reveal of the relationship between David and Claire was awesome......I didn't see that coming.

I struggled between rating this book a 3 and a 2, so I opted for the higher rating. I finished the book and highlighted some of the key Buddhist messages but I don't think I'll be following this character into the next two books of the series.

Book Review

Everyone Burns by John Dolan

The setting is Koh Samui, Thailand. I spend lots of time in Thailand, but only as a tourist. This story gives an excellent feel for what it would be like to be a Westerner actually living there. It's great to see an insider's view of this life.

The characters come to life. They are created in a fashion that makes you feel you know them intimately - like them or not, you will know them. The protagonist is a flawed character that you grow to like, but would often like to throttle him.

The plot/story line is absolutely fascinating. The author takes you into a variety of interconnected subplots that keeps you guessing the whole time.

For anyone with an interest in Buddhism, (like my wife, who is currently engrossed in the book), there is lots of thoughtful and insightful philosophical passages. The hero is forced to engage in self-discovery throughout the whole story.

The ending is very satisfying and completes the picture making you glad you invested the time into reading the story.

As a slow reader, I would usually take a month to get through such a story, only being able to read a chapter or two each day. But this was one of the few books I had trouble putting down and finished in record time. I am now keen on reading more by John Dolan.

Highly recommended.

Storytelling, dialogue and humor were superb in this international mystery/crime book (in fact, I can't remember reading one as fun that was anywhere similar to this in a long time). Some passages that had me laughing included "The less oiled customers and the females disappeared quicker than a Scotsman's generosity" , ' "Klaus Vogel," he says unnecessarily through humorless lips. "David Braddock," I reply suppressing the urge to click my heels." ' , "Just great. PC's company is about as welcome as a turd in a fondue, and DTs will be less useful than a second appendix" , "Kat and I are both such good liars, we really should be married. Either that or in politics together" and many more. My one hang-up was that while I found secondary characters such as his pregnant secretary, Da and housemaid, Wayan eminently likeable I was a bit put off by protagonist David given his smarmy sexual appetite most prominently displayed in the steamy set in chapter 8, tho he admits as much to his character flaw(s) in this passage, "The uncomplicated domesticity of this scene, compared with the lying, cheating and lewdness of the last fourty-eight hours, almost brings tears of relief to my eyes. How far my life has strayed from normalcy." While I wasn't liking him much at this point in the book it turned around big time with a tremendous finish I enjoyed immensely leaving me wanting for more and am glad I grabbed "A Poison Tree" from same author when I did. Great book and I will leave you with a final passage that kind of softened the edge of David's character for me as he reminiscences, "The path to contentment may be through immersing yourself in the problems of others: for while you do this, your own problems don't exist."
