But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor

(Ed. Note: We’ve had a spate of memoirs the past few years by performers with little story to tell and even less skill for storytelling, but James M. Turner is a glorious exception. He engaged me fully with the story of his ascent as a musician, but this book was transformed from a good read to a can’t-put-down with the compelling tale of the deeds and dangers involved in his struggles for human decency in the jungle of southeast Asia. Along the way he reveals a novelist’s touch for narrative and dialogue. It’s not only a wonderful story of one man’s times, but better yet, of his struggle to redeem those times. –S.W.)

by James M Turner 
Beyond The Comfort Zone is the remarkable true story of one man’s extraordinary journey, from the music stages and TV studios of the world to the jungles of South East Asia. As one of the UK’s premier session musicians James M Turner led a life most only dream about, playing saxophone with some of the world’s bestselling artists and travelling the globe performing to legions of adoring fans. So, as he stood on stage at Wembley Stadium, raised his sax and 70,000 people screamed into the night air, he could have been forgiven for thinking that his life would always be this way. A few short years later however he would find himself deep in The Golden Triangle, fighting for his sanity and survival as he attempts to infiltrate and capture those engaged in the tearful trade of human trafficking. 
“The low pass by the chopper had brought back that ominous feeling. There was something sinister about that sound. That relentless, winding, bass frequency Doppler. Something about the way it penetrated deep inside the chest cavity and rumbled through the organs made me nervous. What was going on over the border? What plans were being hatched? What stories were being told to prise daughters from their mother’s arms and what heartbreak was seeding itself permanently in the breast of mother and child? I could feel the dark maw of the pit opening up again…”

Amazon review
Beyond The Comfort Zone is among the best, and certainly the most engrossing, non-fiction books I have read in a long time. One of the strongest compliments I can pay is that while being entirely believable and hyperbole-free, it reads like fiction, and tightly written, exciting fiction at that. [..] Sometimes incredibly funny at others desperately heartbreaking, I could not put it down. “

His exceptional journey is the making of a Hollywood blockbuster and at times I had to remind myself that it’s a true story [..] Turner’s dialogue leaps off the page. A Shantaram for south east asia.”

this is one book that will grip you from start to finish. If you’re looking for a unique read, full of interest, intrigue, danger, and high emotion, then this is the book for you.

Martin Legace is a former special ops standout, once recognized as the top field interrogator in the American military complex. His study of the human mind was carried out in make-shift tents on the edge of the battlefield; he didn’t write or read the book on how to break a prisoner, he simply followed his instincts, dissecting human behavior in a way that verges on autism. He had a reputation for getting anything out of anyone – “had” being the operative word. Five years ago, a random crime shattered Legace’s world. Withdrawing inside himself, he built his life around the only family he had left, his teenage daughter. He withdrew from operations, and took the most isolated post he could, in the basement of the Alexandria FBI, working the archives. Legace brought consequence to the job. His tactics of getting inside the minds of criminals led to a controversial new form of investigation that came to be known as- shadow projection. It was a term coined by his insufferable regional director, Bailey, and Legace couldn’t begin to count the ways he hated the simplification of his process. Legace threw the deductive model out the window. He didn’t follow the trail of the criminal; he took on criminals who were smart enough to leave no trail. They were fixed objects like sundials casting a unique shadow for every incremental step in their journey. His methods involved knowing the inner workings of the criminal, and projecting forward to the next activity that such a person would engage in.  His life was verging on stable when a young female agent from Washington walked into his office with an opportunity, an obligation and a threat. Now, normally Legace would have ignored all three, but there was something about the case and the victim that struck a very personal chord in him.  All of his powers were going to be needed for a case that landed on his desk along the agent who now called herself his new partner. There was an abduction ring that was preying upon young women of marginal fame, using them in adult films and ransoming them for the price of pornography. The profit engine became a fad among perverts (the largest single unified economic bloc) and the income was staggering. This great influx of capital precipitated a bold move by the abductors. Their newest acquisition was the daughter of an old friend, the Director of the FBI. All hell was breaking loose over the Web and the world, and with a two-week window to find his quarry, Legace knew that his performance on this case would either cement his reputation as borderline charlatan with blood on his hands, or announce his reinstatement as borderline hero with all of the official responsibilities that entails, and he couldn’t actually say which outcome he feared more.

‘The writing is elegant and surprisingly humorous — if you haven’t come across Beck before, you’re in for a treat.’ Guardian 
‘I have never read a finer police story.’ Los Angeles Times 
‘The decalogue about the Swedish Chief Inspector Martin Beck created by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo during the 1960s and 1970s are indeed classic police fiction. They changed the genre. Whoever is writing crime fiction after these novels inspired by them in one way or another.’ Henning Mankell 
‘If you haven’t read Sjowall/Wahloo, start now.’ Sunday Telegraph 
‘Their mysteries don’t just read well; they reread even better. Witness, wife, petty cop or crook — they’re all real characters even if they get just a few sentences. The plots hold, because they’re ingenious but never inhuman.’ New York Times London Review of Books 
Publisher: Harper Perennial (10 April 2009)
