Another excellent review, written on a bathroom wall in a rather well-known Phnom Penh bar. Name and address withheld.
Author’s note: Blurbs and praise for the Punji Trap were written on behalf of the reviewer and not the publication they work for. It is common practice, and a courtesy, in publishing for a reviewer and the author to list who they work for. To do so should not be interpreted as an official endorsement from their publisher as that would require the incorporation of an official logo from the company making such an endorsement. The initial reaction from readers of the Punji Trap has been terrific, as such a second print run is anticipated soon with updated reviews for the cover.
