Cold Hit Audio Book

The audio book for Cold Hit now has a great trailer. Have a look. The idea is to give a sense of the book and the Bangkok setting. Much thanks to Sean at Aquarium Studios for the production.

Jarad Henry put together the footage and Aquarium did a fantastic job laying down the sound and editing the video. Veteran VO actor Dan Russell brings Vincent Calvino and Bangkok alive.

“If there’s a new book by Christopher G. Moore, the Bangkok-based Canadian author, I’ll read that, particularly if it’s a Calvino private eye one. His novels, set among louche expatriates in a semi-criminal nocturnal demi-monde, managed to put Bangkok into a context for me when I was spending time in S.E. Asia. He leads you into hidden establishments and constructs, some palatial, some mean hovels in hidden side-streets, to which only a cat could find its way and that by accident.”
Peter Stark,Quarterly Review
