Following the success of his first novel, Taikor, which was nominated for the 2006 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, Khoo Kheng-Hor has launched this second one which plunges the readers into the glitzy world of nightclubbing. As Khoo takes you behind the scenes of a large Kuala Lumpur cabaret and nightclub, be shocked and fascinated by the lives of a host of vividly-drawn characters, from the dance hostesses, mamasans, managers, bouncers to those customers who patronize nightclubs. Be prepared to find yourself in a whole new world totally different from those known to most of us. It is a world where money - plenty of it - is king, arousing greed, lust, violence, and yet be surprised to find out that the players are, in truth, no different from us, the average guys, as they too could love, hate, dream, hope, despair, feel hurt, bleed, laugh and cry as we do.
As a passionate storyteller, Khoo spins a tale encompassing other tales covering juvenile delinquency, growing up, deceit versus honesty, love, broken homes, corruption and power abuse of police officers, rape, blackmail and murder. Be entertained.
