When I read Owen Jones’ take on the vampire myth, ‘The Disallowed’, one of the things I enjoyed most about it was how he took such a tried and tested meme and gave it new interest and a freshness that is so lacking in vamp novels today.
Well, he’s done it again in his latest offering ‘Dead Centre’.

I am a big fan of books on Thailand - particularly what some would describe as the darker side. The Thai bar scene is much talked about and generally misunderstood. Many books seem to be written based on a single visit and dwell on the old cliche of sex pervert meets scheming hooker. It is all so much more complicated than that - and this book will give you a rally good insight. Owen Jones knows Thailand and he understands the interaction between the players in Thai bars very well.
It's authentic, poignant and very entertaining.

Owen Jones’ ‘A Night in Annwn’ starts with an ordinary life of a widower who has an extraordinary near death experience. In his near death experience William finds himself in Annwn with his late wife as his guide. Near death experiences, reincarnation, and the journey of the soul are topics I love to explore, but I did not know much about the Welsh mythology of Annwn. I feel that ‘A Night in Annwn’ William’s exploration of Annwn was very descriptive, interesting and inspiring. I found William’s, and his daughter’s, quest for spiritual knowledge and healing thought provoking. I applaud that while William embraced his phenomenal near death experience he also strive to have a fuller life than he had been living before his experience. The end of William’s story was very touching and uplifting.
This is a book that makes you think beyond the here and now. Well done. - Maria

GENUINE INSIGHT INTO THE LIVES OF BAR GIRLS IN THAILAND.
If you have visited, or intend to visit Thailand, this story (Daddy's Hobby) will give you a real insight into the lives, hopes and aspirations of the girls who work in the bars there. After reading this book you should have a much better understanding of what is happening around you and hopefully make you much more sympathetic to the girls you meet there. Once started it really was a book that I had a job to put down. It has been written by someone who has a thorough understanding of the subject matter. A very, very enjoyable read. - Phil Crozier
Fantastic , amazing, slow beginning but because it had to be, really needed to understand Lek. Such amazing climax I nearly cried thinking the next book wasn't yet published, so pleased to find it was and can't wait to start reading it , I have a friend(46 farang ) in Thailand who has married a Thai girl and this book has educated me so much I can correspond with him on a real level and fully appreciate his dilemas x - A. Jackson
Just wanted to say what a great read and how much I enjoyment I got from your book series (Behind The Smile) “ The story of Lek”.
As a reader it felt like I was part of the story.
I have recommended you to a mate and he is buying your book today.
Love to buy you a beer one day!
Thanks again! - Bo Tanic
I really enjoyed it (Alien House)! The narration was great and kept me entertained. The author did a great job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last! I look forward to reading more of his books. I was given a free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. - G.C.
