One of my favourite people, John Dolan, has just released his highly anticipated fourth book called Running on Emptiness for the Time, Blood and Karma series.
As he describes it, the series appeals to lovers of: mystery, thriller, crime, Thailand fiction, private investigators, British detectives, and amateur sleuths.
The book also marks the welcome return of David Braddock, Dolan’s charismatic anti-hero.
I interviewed the author in 2013. If you missed it, hop over now and have a read.
I was fortunate enough to grab an early copy of the book and can’t wait to read it.
Now, let’s learn more about Running on Emptiness.
“Today, there will be a reckoning.”
It is the summer of 2006. In Thailand, the army makes preparations to overthrow the elected government of Thaksin Shinawatra.
Against this backdrop of political turmoil, destinies are shaped as events ensnare a corrupt Police Chief and his dying wife, two warring drug lords, an embittered widow, and a vengeful gangster.
While dreams and obsessions play out on the streets of Bangkok, private detective David Braddock finds himself mired in guilt. The ghosts of his past misdeeds are coming home, and they are bringing devastation in their wake.
Running on Emptiness is the fourth volume in the ‘Time, Blood and Karma’ series.
If you haven’t read the first three books, I strongly recommend that you do. You’ll thank me for it. :)

It’s a great short story with a peculiar connection to A Poison Tree.
