Terry Fernandez is a musician on the run. His friends have just been killed on the night of his bachelor party. He thinks he’s next – and he suspects the Minister of Education.
Ning Somprasong is a Thai hooker who normally keeps herself out of trouble. But one night, she bites off more than she can chew and ends up with a bag of ill-gotten US$18 million – and many pursuers.
Terry and Ning have to team up to save their own lives. The madcap chase through the streets of Kuala Lumpur also feature: a taxi driver who’s fond of conspiracy theories; a CIA agent; a terrorist on a mission to wipe out infidels; an opportunistic journalist; a crooked cop; and a pimp called Fellatio Lim who is just about to discover what his name means.
Devil’s Place is a cult Malaysian novel about terrorism, prostitution, politics and other funny stuff.
'Devil's Place reveals the flipside to Malaysia's supposed commonplace idiosyncrasies that displaces itself from the ordinary and still lives to tell. The novel also stays topical with a relevant global slant as the subject of terrorism is brought into play and innocent characters pursue escape.'
