How do you respond when you wake up to find a severed head on your resort-front beach in the morning? If you're frustrated ex-crime reporter Jimm Juree, you take action. With her former cop grandfather as back up, she sets out to discover how the poor fellow ended up where he did - and why. On their journey, with the rest of their disjointed family in tow, they uncover gruesome tales of piracy and slavery, violence and murder in the Gulf of Thailand.
Are the authorities uninterested because they're involved, or because the victims aren't Thai? Whatever the reason, Jimm and her team are going it alone and their lives are under threat. And who exactly are those two elegant women in cabin three and why has the engine number of their car been filed away?
Airport hostages and hand grenades, monkeys and naked policemen - once more the sublime and the ridiculous clash at the Gulf Bay Lovely Resort and Restaurant.
"Cotterill masterfully blends real-world issues... with appealing cozy elements and his trademark humor. Series readers will be thrilled with this installment and anxious for the next one." (Booklist)

Lively, charming and unexpected
- Hannah "I have been a consistent, possibly obsessed audiobook listener since 2003. My listening ranges from suspenseful mysteries to science and technology, but I return again and again to the unexpected depth and breadth of books which fall into the "Mysteries and Thrillers" category."
Charming, Funny Listen
The reader was great, the characters wonderful and funny, plus I learned so much about Thailand and Laos.
I love to read Colin Cotterill, the characters and stories are always well drawn and he gives you a great image of a part of the world I've never visited.
So many, I think Jim's brother and fiancee were a wonderful vision. Also the last scenes which would be a spoiler if I described them.
I like to break up the books, they keep me company when I am working alone.
Mr. Cotterill keep them coming!
