Inhaltsangabe: Sean had an agreement with his parents. If he worked hard and applied himself at University, then they would fund his summer trips. On graduation, provided he had finally decided on a plan for his future, and there had been no problems on his summer trips, he could have a gap year. The first year, after sixth form, he chose Thailand. It was cheap and had a reputation. He wanted sex, as well as enlightenment. He was expecting to have problems, be robbed or conned. He hoped to have casual sex. After all he was eighteen and horny, and his experience limited. But he wasn?t expecting to get close to anyone, certainly not a bar boy. But then he met Tam. Tam shared his life, in ways Sean hadn?t wanted and by the end of his trip accepted Tam?s lifestyle. A year later Sean returns, against all odds having kept in touch with Tam. A year older, but maybe not a year wiser. He reluctantly agrees to join Tam on a trip to his home village where Tam wants to visit his ?teacher?. A journey to the far north east of Thailand, to Isaan. A journey that would be a challenge in ways Sean never dreamt. The ?teacher? turns out to be an Isaan Black Magic Master, or so he claims. The truth is revealed and both Tam and Sean have to reevaluate their beliefs. What they both realise is that it?s time to put the past behind them, start afresh and ensure that they act on things before it is too late. After all, the sesame seed burns before the cashew nut cooks; don?t let issues hang around too long or they?ll burn you.
Über den Autor: Robert Bell was born in the UK and after years of visits finally relocated to Thailand 7 years ago. Initially he lived in Pattaya, but has now relocated to Udon Thani in the North East [Isaan] of Thailand. His first novel, Rough Diamonds, which he has made available for free download, draws heavily on his experiences in his early years living in Thailand, and frequent trips before then. Many of the more surprising events actually happened to him, although they are set in a fictional bar. The characters take traits from various guys he has met in Thailand, as do the locations. The story of the characters, and venues, Robert created continues in Diamond Fellowship and Facets of Thai Diamonds. History is revealed, and they set up a business empire. In his fourth book, Final Closure, a past that Paul Swift thought he'd left behind in Germany, comes to control the present. The fictional sois that Robert created are the backdrop to this thriller, but the characters are new. They realise however, that it isn't Final as his latest book, The Fifth Man, follows Paul as he tracks down the puppet master. Robert is working on a further instalment of the Thai Diamonds story, provisionally entitled 'Polished Diamonds' A short story marks a departure for Robert. The first, 'Clash of Wills' is the story of set in North Yorkshire where Ray returns to take care of his father's funeral and finds things aren't as expected, as he slowly discovers the truth about his father. His time living in Isaan has exposed him to 'Isaan Black Magic' which was the inspiration for two books. 'Run Away From the Tiger, Face The Crocodile' relates the journey of Martin and Rene to overcome their demons at a 'temple' in North East Thailand. They have a feeling that they are dealing with forces they don't understand. In 'The Sesame Seed Burns Before The Cashew Nut Cooks' Sean visits Thailand and meets Tam. Tam believes in Black magic but the events which take place in Udon shake that belief 'Filipino Cruz' sees the backdrop change from Thailand to Manila as four young guys decide on their future. The follow up, 'Thai Cruz' sees them visit Thailand. The story will conclude in 'Cruz Control'. For more information visit http://thaidiamondbooks.moonfruit.com
