Sky Dog by Mark Rogers
A must-read blockbuster crime novel.
Flynn O’Brien is a screenwriter and director, and once the toast of Hollywood. But after a string of box office flops, he’s now on the outside looking in, hoping to get back in the game. When he hears of the legend of Sky Dog, a homeless veteran who roamed Bangkok’s Sky Way trains dealing out vigilante justice, Flynn is inspired and starts to write.
With the backing of a small studio, he heads to Bangkok to start shooting. It’s a good time to get out of town, as he’s just had a run in with his sister Peck’s Armenian drug dealers, and they are out for blood.
But touching down in Thailand, Flynn finds himself in the middle of a brewing political coup that threatens to shut down the film shoot. It’s up to Flynn to keep the movie rolling, but he’s not sure who he can trust. Things get even more complicated when he begins to imagine the real Sky Dog might be close at hand…
Set in Hollywood and Bangkok, Sky Dog takes you behind the scenes of the glamourous movie industry and the exotic city of Bangkok in a fast-paced, blockbuster thriller.
