Today the Gallivant Books free book is Budda on the Road by Jeff Pearce. Here’s the blurb:
They say the past is a foreign country. For Brin Harper, that country is Burma.
Brin is an NYPD homicide detective haunted by the suicide of his mother, an accomplished diplomat. And his grief is slowly eroding his relationship with his journalist boyfriend, Richard. Now a set of vicious murders is about to dredge up secrets and bitter regrets from thousands of miles away and many years ago.
The trail leads to a strange monk who doesn’t behave at all like a holy man. Brin is faced with a range of suspects, from the American widower of political dissident Marlar Swe, to his on-again, off-again lover, Aung, a quiet professor who has survived time in Burma’s infamous Insein Prison.
As the killer claims more victims, each murdered in a fashion inspired by Burmese culture, Brin must confront his own past and play a duel of wits with the monk, trying to decipher what his role is in the case. And disturbing revelations wait for Brin when he exposes this psychotic murderer…
