Book Review & Giveaway: Riot Green by Woon Tai Ho

Recently we chatted with Woon Tai Ho about his mountain top scent experience in Bhutan. His latest book is Riot Green. Riot Green is about a child prodigy – an artist who creates a famed painting called Riot Green.

Book Review
Riot Green steps into the enthralling world of Chinese spirituality set against a breathtaking canvas of human avarice and physiological manipulation. Woon has given us the ultimate backdoor pass into the underbelly of the art world in Asia. A fascinating read on many levels.
