Hun­ters in the Dark

Discover Cambodia - - IN THE KNOW - BY LAWRENCE OS­BORNE

Touted by some as the new Gra­ham Greene, writer-cum-no­mad Lawrence Os­borne's lat­est lit­er­ary thriller fol­lows de­spair­ing English teacher Robert Grieve across the Thai-Cam­bo­dia bor­der and into a pit of vi­o­lence, corruption and in­trigue from which he strug­gles to es­cape. As Robert's once-lack­lus­tre life be­comes hope­lessly en­tan­gled in the machi­na­tions of ur­bane play­boy Si­mon Beau­camp and Kh­mer Rouge tor­turer-turned-crooked-cop Davuth, his an­guished med­i­ta­tions on the fun­da­men­tal ir­ra­tional­ity of ex­is­tence give Hun­ters in the Dark a depth that will en­dure long after the last page has been turned.
