In The Phantom Lover and Other Tales of Thailand a photojournalist is literally haunted by the images of everyone he ever failed or exploited in the name of story.

A career executioner explores the nature of violence in a painful search for a little loving kindness his world. For these and all the others in the pages of this book despair is another word for normal, and their Thailand is a place full of demons — some born of dark magic, others born of a dark past.
