Nachtmarkt coverNachtmarkt. That’s Behind The Night Bazaar in German edition. I was excited to discover a review featuring the cover of the German edition as I’ve yet to see the actual book. In an effort to understand the text of the review (translation being beyond my Year 11 German), I used Babel Fish and came up with the following glorious results:

“A list-rich heroine has Angela Savage in their first thriller to create. Jayne Keeney, (like the authoress from Australia coming) toughe and stout-heartet Privatdetektivin in Bangkok, visits her gay friend Didier in Chiang May (like the authoress in the AIDS assistance is active). This is suspected the murder and dies with its arrest. Jayne makes itself against many warnings and better knowledge to clear its death up.

“The Plot is excitingly, the figures interesting and reliable and the Setting fascinatingly. Particularly at the beginning one is taken quasi with the hand and led into a Thailand off the tourist paths. Later Savage concentrates more on times dangerous, times amusing, times amouroesen adventure Jaynes, which dearer more refined cheat yourself than (weapon n) force served. That or the authors are soon certain – if also with difficulty somewhat of it to prove would leave itself – and then goes particularly around background from Didiers death, whereby Jayne puts on itself with a Unterwelt-boss.

“She finally succeeds in with cunning and fraud manipulating their environment in such a way that almost all justice happens, while she gets off undisturbed: All bad ones are not punished, but for the good ones geht’s well out – and Didier is rehabilitated.

“And Savage writes already at a continuation, in which Jayne examines the alleged suicide of an Australian in the Thai Pattaya.”

Genießen! (‘Enjoy!’)
