Product description

Review

"Outstanding ... deftly inserts humor into what could easily have been an unrelentingly grim plot line." --"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review
"The most entertaining case for Siri ("Love Songs from a Shallow Grave," 2010, etc.) in years." --"Kirkus"
"Any crime fan who hasn't discovered the Dr. Siri books should start here and then work back. This is the eighth and best, and it's been far too long since book seven." --"Globe and Mail"
"Cotterill brings together all the elements that have made the stories so popular: a good mystery, plenty of humor, and a touch of the supernatural. A must for series fans."--"Booklist
"
Praise for the Dr. Siri series:
"Unpredictable.... Tragically funny and magically sublime."--"Entertainment Weekly"
"A wonderfully fresh and exotic mystery. If Cotterill had done nothing more than treat us to Siri's views on the dramatic, even comic crises that mark periods of government upheaval, his debut mystery would still be fascinating.

"
"You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the '70s. The humor is wonderful, too."--"New York Post"
"The sights, smells and colors of Laos practically jump off the pages of this inspired, often wryly witty first novel."--"Denver Post"
"A fresh and innovative detective who goes straight to the heart and soul, without any sappty sentiment. THe author gives us exotic locations; a world that few us know well; crisp, intelligent, and often-witty writing; and most of all a hero unlike any other."--"Philadelphia Inquirer
"
"A crack storyteller and an impressive guide to a little-known culture."--"Washington Post Book World"
"This is the seventh and most sardonic of Mr. Cotterill's Dr. Siri series, and it is not easy to cope with th
