Présentation de l'éditeur

How does one make the journey from the glitz and glamour of showbiz to the dark and dangerous world of International Child Trafficking?

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 best selling Artists 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.

'Beyond The Comfort Zone' is the remarkable true story of one man's extraordinary journey, from the stages and T.V. Studios of the world to the Jungles of South East Asia.
It is, unsurprisingly... unique.

"....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...."

This book was not exactly what I was expecting when I read the premise. Not in a bad way though. The premise is about how one of UK's premier musicians finds himself in the Golden Triangle working to infiltrate the trade of Human Trafficking. And that's exactly what it was. But having read about books on human Trafficking before, obviously my mind jumped to conclusions. So in a way Beyond The Comfort Zone was refreshing.

Jim, as the author is referred in the book, was born in Northwich in 1961. He describes how he went from an unknown saxophone player to one who played for famous bands like Bros and Take That, But after years of playing and after opening his own production company, he decided he wanted a change, to go on adventures he had read about on NatGeo magazines. The first 50 pages or so describes his life before and during his music career. Although I had never heard of this musician or even the bands Bros and Take That (I don't listen to Western music a lot), I was never bored. It was an entertaining tale.

In 2002, he finds himself in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I would have loved to know why he decided on this particular place and what was he really planning to do there. But seems like that was exactly what he was planning, to NOT do anything, probably just experience a new place. He meets many people along the way, foreigners as well as the local people. Franco was one of those guys.

Franco and Jim, armed with a hidden video camera just for the sake of fun and possibly coming away with something explosive, go to a Burmese village along the Thailand-Burma (Myanmar) Border. They find themselves wanting to capture something of importance, something that would capture the child prostitution that is so ripe in Thailand and that particular region. They come away with some footage which turns out to be very rare and before they know they are pulled into something much larger than they had anticipated.

Beyond The Comfort Zone was thrilling and entertaining. It was also sad because it was real. It made me angry and sad for the hundreds of children who are trafficked for prostitution every year. The author describes daily life in Thailand, not necessary from a locals point of view but not from a tourists viewpoint either. At times I did not want to read about Franco's and his antics but they too offer a different view of Thailand. This book does not really dwell deep into the human trafficking issue, it is mostly the authors experiences and the adventures he had along the way. The last hundred pages or so had me holding my breath waiting to know what happened. This being a memoir only adds more to that feeling. All I can say is don't judge this book by its cover. Recommended to those who like memoirs and those who like their memoirs to read like a novel.

James Turner possesses that rare quality few writers (especially first time writers) embody. Beyond the Comfort Zone allows you feel as if he's speaking directly to you, taking you along on this great selfless journey with him. I salute Jim for finding the courage to completely change the course of his life. As clichéd as it sounds, I laughed as well as cried while reading this book. Thoughts of the many lives intertwined throughout his travels linger well after you've finished the last chapter. This book is a comfortable quick read; you will anxiously rush through wondering what in the world will happen next. A simple portent of things to come shared towards the end will take your breath away.

"Beyond the Comfort Zone" captured me from the prologue. It takes a lot to keep me interested in a memoir, but James manages to keep the gas pedal on the floor the entire way, and I'll be the first to say I could hardly put the book down.

If you are looking for an action-packed book that is well written and hard to put down, look no further.

James M. Turner's book, Beyond The Comfort Zone, tells Mr. Turner's extraordinary story of going to great lengths (at great personal risk) in Thailand and Burma (now Myanmar) to try to help stop the illegal selling of Burmese children into the sex trade in Thailand. Mr. Turner's courage and determination are only eclipsed by his uncanny writing ability. I could not put the book down, and neither will you. You'll read it in 24 hours because you won't be able to put it down either. If you like non-fiction that reads like a novel, this is the book for you. It will both thrill and scare you. Great summer beach read, by the way. Order yours right now. You won't be sorry!!!
