Phnom Penh, Cambodia: the end of the line. Lawless, drug-soaked, forgotten-it's where bad journalists go to die. For once-great war photographer Will Keller, that''s kind of a mission statement: he spends his days floating from one score to the next, taking any job that pays; his nights are a haze of sex, drugs, booze, and brawling. But Will's spiral toward oblivion is interrupted by Kara Saito, a beautiful young woman who shows up and begs Will to help find her sister, June, who disappeared during a stint as an intern at the local paper.
Cambo offers a hundred kinds of trouble that June could have got mixed up in. The Phnom Penh underworld is in an uproar after a huge drug bust, a local reporter has been murdered in a political hit, and the government and opposition are locked in a standoff that could throw the country into chaos at any moment. But June came with secrets and terrors of her own. Cambodia is not the only place she's traveled, or the worst, and the more Will learns about her past, the more danger they both are in....
Propulsive, electric, and filled with unforgettable characters, Cambodia Noir marks the arrival of a fresh new talent. Nick Seeley's debut novel is a powerful and unsettling exploration of loss, and being lost, and what happens when we go too far into the dark.
