The Back Flap

In the wake of Arbitrator Jonah Oliver’s interrogation of Jibril Muraz, a prisoner of UNPOL, his secure life disintegrates into one of lies, corruption, conspiracy and murder due to what he learns.

Jonah is thrown into a race against the clock to stop a plot designed to eliminate two-thirds of the population. The odds are stacked against him. He soon finds his past is not what he thought it was, those closest to him cannot be trusted, and what he’s learned could get him, or worse, his loved ones, killed.

On 15 March 2110, 6.3 billion people will die at the hand of one man.

A man with a twisted vision, to make humans a better, more intelligent race.

From a world where personal privacy has been forsaken comes a tale of conspiracy, love and murder – and the bond shared by brothers.

Bangkok Burn


Bangkok Burn a novel by Simon RoyleThe Back Flap

12 May 2010
 A war is taking place on the streets of Bangkok as political cliques fire bullets and rockets at each other.
Mysterious ‘Men in Black’ snipe combatants from both sides.
It is a good time to settle old scores.

Take a walk on the darkside with Chance. An enigma: family-orientated, loyal and loving… and a cold-blooded killer….

This chilling, high-octane thriller takes you to parts of Bangkok no tourist should ever go, a world where life is cheap and morality non-existent.
Hungry crocodiles, fast action, and a deep understanding of how Thailand really works, make for a riveting read.
