What You Don’t Know

Written by


Hoi An-based novelist Elka Ray is back with her latest title, What You Don’t Know: Tales of Obsession, Mystery & Murder in Southeast Asia.


An American lawyer dreams of murdering his Thai trophy wife. A Vietnamese soldier encounters madness in a haunted forest. Tragedy rocks a bereaved mother’s trip to Cambodia. This collection of 10 short, gripping and eerie stories journeys from Sumatran jungles to the seedy bars of Bangkok to the superficially sedate streets of Singapore.


Travelling with you is a black brew of fear, greed, grief, jealousy, lust and wrath. And your final destination? What you don’t know…


This collection is darker than Elka Ray’s first novel, Hanoi Jane, and takes readers on a journey from the macabre to the blackly humorous.


What You Don’t Know is available in paperback or on Kindle via Elka Ray has been living in Vietnam for 20 years. For more info click on
