and Stories of Other Expats in Southeast Asia
by Harold Stephens
The disappearance of Jim Thompson is one of the most baffling mysteries that has come out of the Far East. The story told here is even more interesting because the author met Jim Thompson, and a few days after the Thai Silk King disappeared, he joined other searchers looking for him in the Malay jungle. The author also came to know intimately all the people connected with Thompson, including those who possibly held the clew to his disappearance. As to whether or not the truth will ever be known, the author has his owns thoughts, as he relates in the epilogue.
