Description
Praise for Colin Cotterill's Dr Siri Series: "Wonderfully fresh and exotic.... The multiple cases spread out on Siri's examining table are not cozy entertainments but substantial crimes that take us into the thick of political intrigue."- The New York Times Book Review "A fresh and innovative detective who goes straight to the heart and soul, without any sappy sentiment. The author gives us exotic locations; a world that few of us know well; crisp, intelligent, and often witty writing; and most of all a hero unlike any other."- Philadelphia Inquirer Dr Siri Paiboun, reluctant national coroner of the People's Democratic Republic of Laos, is summoned to a remote location in the mountains of Huaphan Province, where for years the leaders of the current government had hidden out in caves, waiting to assume power. Now, as a major celebration of the new regime is scheduled to take place, an arm is found protruding from the concrete walk that had been laid from the President's former cave hideout to his new house beneath the cliffs. Dr Siri is ordered to supervise the disinterment of the body attached to the arm, identify the corpse, and discover how he died. For more information, visit www.colincotterill.com
