Jim Thompson Mystery Solved!

Solved! Really? Now that would be the day! The disappearance of Jim Thompson has captured the imagination of many visitors for those who have heard about him and his disappearance in Cameron Highlands.

Mystery and famous conspiracy theories always intrigue the general masses. Everybody just loves a mystery. Just consider the supposedly UFO crash site of Area 51, and you would think about government conspiracy theory of cover ups, secret labs, and who knows what other information the government may be hiding from us! Our general distrust of governmental bodies which seem to have some hidden agendas of their own and propagating it as national security.

Jim Thompson disappearance in the Cameron Highlands was no different from that of many other unsolved mysteries just like the abandoned Mary Celeste ship roaming the high seas with its crew disappeared without a trace!

Considering the background of Jim Thompson and his previous employment as an ex-OSS operative, highly imaginative writers and journalist or conspiracy theorist will just try to fill in the blanks of Jim Thompson supposedly covert activities. Most of us will never take the trouble to research deeply; after all, we have many day to day matters to sort out, where would we have time to verify all those theories?

However, Edward Roy De Souza was really captivated by the Mysterious Jim Thompson disappearance, and he decided to search deeper beneath the surface of what could have actually happened. His investigation has lead him to some very surprising conclusion. So with his permission, Edward has graciously allowed me to republish his excerpt from his book, titled "SOLVED! The Mysterious Disappearance of Jim Thompson, the Legendary Thai Silk King"

So grab yourself some English hot tea and delicious scones (couldn't resist mentioning it!) and sit back and read through the excerpt. If you like it, you can order the full length book from Amazon.com that includes:

    Three maps and 12 illustrations.

    The three maps highlighted are:

  1. a map of the Cameron Highlands;
  2. a map of the Kamunting precinct; and
  3. a map of Northwest Malaysia.
    The 12 illustrations featured:
