Friends and neighbors,
The Singapore Straits Times said, “Jake Needham is Asia’s most stylish and atmospheric writer of crime fiction,” and living up to their praise is something I take very seriously. That’s why I work so hard at getting the atmosphere of my novels exactly right.
This past week, I’ve been in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, spending time at some places I may use in a novel one of these days.
The only way to get around Hanoi efficiently is on a motorbike. Unfortunately, that’s exactly how everybody gets around Hanoi so the streets can get pretty crowded…
