The autopsy provides some surprises, but it is his gifts as a shaman that enable the 73-year-old doctor to discover why the victim was buried alive and to identify the killer.

Life goes on
it is hard to explain why a series about a 72-year-old French-trained physician working under repressive conditions for a regime he gave his youth to put in power should be so life-affirming. It is hard to explain why the mysticism that underlies the stories and frequently moves the plot should work so well.
So I won't try.
Just be sure to start at the start of the series,The stories actually get better, but the first book helps ground you in the environment that Mr. Cotterill has created..

A delightful non-detective!

Dr. Siri is at it again! Our slyly amusing National Coroner and his nurse Dtui are called away to investigate a gruesome corpse. The ensuing investigation is more than a little unusual and full of red herrings and sneaky twists. Very shortly after they left, the self serving head of the justice department arranged to have Mr Geung transported by the army to a remote area simply because the valuable morgue assistant has Down's. That is another complicated tale and parallel to the other. All in all, this is a fascinating read!
Clive Chafer is the great narrator here!
