If you enjoy quirky mysteries with a touch of humour and the bizarre then check out the first book in the Bob Lowe Investigation series.
Bob Lowe may have only been semi-serious when he decided to become Bangkok's newest expat private investigator, but before he has time to think he's on the trail of a tuk-tuk thief. As he uncovers something deeper he's hired to check on a cheating boyfriend and clear up a scandal in the Ladies Bridge and Lunch Society. Meanwhile an ex-disco dancing star sets Bob on a journey to find a long lost friend.
Bob Lowe is trying to put his drunken womanising days behind him and follow a path to ‘New Lowe’. Set up as a private investigator with a 'no job too small' strategy Bob takes on anyone who can or might be able to pay him. His bumbling methods may not be conventional and often owe more to lack than judgement but with his trusted friend and translator, Pat, by his side he may just have found his calling in life.

They Mysterious Case of the Missing Tuk-Tuk is Zach J Brodsky's second novel, after the success of Bangkok Delusions which introduced the infamous Bob Lowe to the world.
About Zach J Brodsky
Zach J Brodsky spent much of his youth traipsing around the world where he was fascinated by observing people and creating absurd back stories in his mind about their lives. The result was the creation of an endless list of characters. He roamed around East and Southern Africa in the early 1990s sneaking into what was Zaire to spend some time with mountain gorillas, and later travelled extensively in South East Asia and the West Coast of the USA. Zach experimented with traditional employment for many years before deciding to base himself in Bangkok where he began to observe all the oddities that Bangkok has to offer, ultimately motivating him to try and patch some characters together in creating his first full novel "Bangkok Delusions".
Zach continues to roam the globe milling around South East Asia and quietly observing places and events that might inspire a new storyline. (Summary via Goodreads)
