Love story set against the backdrop of Thailand’s current political difficulties

Justice, Please! is a modern love story set against the backdrop of Thailand’s current political difficulties. Bob and Jasmine, on holiday in Pattaya, run into trouble just after the ASEAN demonstrations of April 2009. They meet up with bad cops and more trouble than they bargained for – soon they need to set off on the run across Isaan. On the way they encounter many good Thai folk who help them as they use various modes of transport to make their escape, from cars to elephants to river boats.

Chasing after them are the police and a news crew from TPBS Bangkok, offering rewards for leads toward their capture. However, the news coverage gradually gets the public onside while also generating international press attention. Facebook fan pages, including one called Justice, Please!, help their cause too. They are finally able to seek refuge at the main temple in Phrathat Phanom. Through local protests, more TPBS coverage and international interest they are able to hold the police off there, but for how long?

Twists in the tale show how important it is to have the help of family, friends, the press and international pressure, to gain greater support and maybe even some overdue justice.
This book blends humour and sensitivity to show what can be done in the midst of the political turmoil of Thailand – the story shows that love and loyalty are found to help any cause. The dialogue makes the book easy to digest, while the fast action makes it a pleasure to read.
