Review

Praise for The Rat-Catchers' Olympics

"Hilarious."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Cotterill has a gift for tempering bad stuff--specifically, the baffling and chaotic political climate of communism circa 1980--with gently ironic humor and frequent doses of slightly kooky occultism. His books are thus a welcome balm for our own current baffling and chaotic political climate."
--The Seattle Times

"Very entertaining."
--WYSO, Ohio Public Radio

"The book ends with a rat-catching competition that is as bizarre as Dr. Siri's wacky sense of humor. This is a unique series."
--Dayton Daily News

"The Dr. Siri books are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, sobering, convoluted, historical and endlessly entertaining . . . This series will have you reading (and laughing) well after most people in your household are sound asleep."
--BookPage, Top Pick

Praise for the Dr. Siri Paiboun Mysteries

"Dazzling."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Terrifically entertaining."
--The Seattle Times

"Unpredictable . . . Tragically funny and magically sublime."
Entertainment Weekly

"You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the '70s. The humor is wonderful, too."
New York Post

"The Dr. Siri books are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, sobering, convoluted, historical and endlessly entertaining . . . This series will have you reading (and laughing) well after most people in your household are sound asleep."
--BookPage, Top Pick

"Along with a mystery that boils over into an international incident, Cotterill gives readers a wonderful re-creation of the 1980 Moscow Olympic Village and the preparations for the Games themselves."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"Cotterill's twisty mystery plot will entertain readers while his cast of eccentric characters charms."
--Shelf-Awareness

"Cotterill excels in the portrayal of potentially serious and momentous topics with lighthearted humor, imbuing his characters with grace and empathy."
--BookPage, Top Pick in Mystery

"Stunning . . . This series offers unfailingly satisfying reading . . . bursting with caustic wit and adventurous spirit."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"Crackles with humor and overflows with eccentric characters. Droll chapter titles add an extra soupcon of mirth."
--Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

The 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow is already rife with controversy, but when a Lao athlete is accused of murder, it escalates into a full blown international incident. In the twelfth entry to the series, Dr. Siri Paiboun and his quirky team of misfits are on the case in a city and country foreign to them, yet familiar in its corruption of justice.
