"Gerard-Alesco adeptly creates a corrupt world that recalls the work of Raymond Chandler with its morally ambiguous characters….The author also paints a vivid picture of Thailand…Overall, the picturesque setting, flawed protagonist, and noir atmosphere make this thriller stand out." (Kirkus)

"Using immersive, highly sensory prose, Gerard-Alesco's Asia is a disorienting, complex and highly dangerous place in which people of every ethnicity and nationality are used like chess pieces by some higher power…While Gerard-Alesco's vivid prose is reminiscent of Joseph Conrad, his plotting more closely resembles that of John le Carre. The exact opposite of contemporaries Mark Greany or Brad Thor, Gerard-Alesco is a patient storyteller and isn't afraid to confront his characters with the grim realities of 20th century politics. Pick up House of Fat Man for the atmosphere and cat-and-mouse spycraft, and stay for what the book has to say about the futility of colonialism and moral ambiguity." (Best Thrillers)
