There have been hundreds of books about the girls who ply the oldest trade in the world around the bars and night-spots of Thailand and it is certainly arguable that yet another volume on the subject would be excess to requirements.
However, up until now it is true to say that nobody has ever given the girls and women in question a chance to have their say about the men who come to peruse the neon-lit jungles of the country and pay for their company and the author feels that it is high time somebody did so.
It is undeniable that the vast majority of books written about Thailand?s bar-girls depict them as mercenary, money-grabbing scammers and it would be naïve and perhaps even foolish for anybody to believe that in a large number of cases this is not true. Maybe this is why most of the males who appear in Thai bar-girl literature appear as unfortunate, love-struck nice-guys who didn?t know any better and who did not deserve to be wronged by a cheating schemer, however convincing, sexy and genuine she might have seemed at the time.
But there are always two sides to every story. The fifteen true tales and anecdotes in ?Thailand bar-girls? men; Saints & Sinners? are straight from the seductive lips of the girls who work the bars and streets of Thailand and they show that there are gentleman amongst their customers who are truly gallant as well as rogues whose appalling behavior at times borders on the demonic.
