LAUNDRY MAN (Jack Shepherd Book 1)

$4.99

"If there's a living writer whose work makes me think of the great Raymond Chandler, it's Jake Needham." - James David Audlin

"LAUNDRY MAN is the kind of book you always hope to find, but rarely do. It's so good on many levels that it's almost frightening someone can tell a story this well." - Perfect at Midnight Reviews

"LAUNDRY MAN is in the tough-talking tradition of Elmore Leonard and deeply infused with a sense of place. Jake Needham gets things right." - Asia Review of Books


Once a high-flying international lawyer, a member of the innermost circles of government power, Jack Shepherd has abandoned the savage politics of Washington for the lethargic backwater of Bangkok, where he is now just an unremarkable professor at an unimportant university in an insignificant city.

Or is he?

A secretive Asian bank collapses under dubious circumstances. A former law partner Shepherd thought was dead admits he was behind the disgraced bank and coerces Shepherd into helping him track the hundreds of millions of dollars that disappeared in the collapse. A twisting trail of deceit leads Shepherd from Bangkok to Hong Kong and eventually to an isolated villa on the fabled island of Phuket where he confronts the evil at the heart of a monstrous game of international treachery.

A lawyer among people who laugh at the law, a friend in a land where today's allies are tomorrow's fugitives, Jack Shepherd battles a global tide of corruption, extortion and murder that is fast engulfing the new life he has made for himself in Thailand.

Jake Needham

JAKE NEEDHAM is an American screen and television writer who began writing crime novels when he realized he really didn't like movies and television very much. He has since published nine popular novels in two series: the Jack Shepherd International Crime Novels and the Inspector Samuel Tay Novels, both of which are set in the cities of contemporary Asia

He is a lawyer by education and has held a number of significant positions in both the public and private sectors where he took part in a lengthy list of international operations he has absolutely no intention of telling you about. Mr. Needham has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand for nearly thirty years. He, his wife, and their two sons now divide their time between homes in Thailand and the United States.
