Hell in Paradise is a personal account of my quest to find my friends after the Tsunami in the South of Thailand in 2004. A long time expat in Thailand, it tells my tale of spending 3 days in the aftermath of the devastating tsunami putting the clues together trying to determine if they are still alive.


An emotional, thought-provoking book describing horrific events that touched me to my core. Even now, after 18 years, those 3 days spent in hell are still with me so vividly that it needed to be written.


The story starts with how we became close friends in a very short time, and what drove me to the decision to go find them.
