eBooks - Stephen Leather

Several of my books are only available as eBooks. In 2010 I released three eBooks that all went on to become massive bestsellers – The Basement (a serial killer story with a great twist), Once Bitten (about vampires in Los Angeles) and Dreamer’s Cat (a science-fiction murder mystery). The Basement was a Kindle US Number 1 bestseller and it also topped the UK Kindle charts for many months. Amazon Encore went on to publish The Basement and Once Bitten and in 2011 I self-published The Bestseller, a thriller about a writer who plans to commit a murder and write about it. I have also written several short stories about a Singapore police detective, Inspector Zhang. They are locked-room mysteries and I really enjoyed writing them. At the moment they are only available as eBooks.

Bangkok Bob & The Missing Mormon

If you’ve read Stephen Leather before, you probably have an idea of what is in store when you pick up this book. And it doesn’t disappoint, in fact, Bangkok Bob is easily interesting enough to be worthy of a dozen sequels. Bob is a rather low key character who hails from the USA and lives in Bangkok. He splits his time between enjoying the finer things in Thai culture and dabbling in some selective detective work. As the story unwinds, we see more sides to Bob than a polygon on steroids.
