The Golden Mount and The Vultures of Bangkok

The title of this post indicates that this will be a serious story, featuring horrific mental imagery that will leave you emotionally scared and unable to sleep – it may do but don’t worry, I will not be mentioning my sweaty bits in this deeply serious tale.
