Plot Summary: You travel to Thailand in hope of learning more about Jim Thompson, an American who worked in the silk business until his mysterious disappearance in 1967.

This book, a sequel to The Mystery of Ura Senke, is notable for two reasons... First of all, it is based on a true story; unless you count historical game books, this sort of thing is unusual in the genre. Secondly, the book was adapted into a thirty minute television special which aired in 1992; as far as I can tell, this is the first (and only) time that an interactive book has been translated to a non-interactive visual medium. Sadly, I've not yet had the good fortune of seeing the special. In any case, the book is nearly (but not quite) as strong as its predecessor, and it is similar in its exploration of an Asian culture and in its internally-consistent development of a mystery plot. The writing is adequate, the choices are interesting, and solving the mystery is a challenge, but many of the story's conclusions aren't quite as satisfying as one might like them to be, and the clues are often found a bit too easily to be believed.
