Backpack: Unlikable character travels through SE Asia

BackpackBackpack by Emily Barr

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A shallow, cocaine-addicted Londoner's mum dies and she plans to travel to Asia with her boyfriend. The boyfriend drops out, so she's on her own. Travelogue combined with murder mystery with romance thrown in. Difficult to get into at first, because of the unlikable protagonist, but I enjoyed reading about SE Asia. Contrived in the end, but I enjoyed it after the first 60 pages.
