For some reason, Colin Coterill's series reminds me a bit of Alexander McCall Smith's, No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency, books. It's something about the way both authors invite us to have a charming and intimate look at life in very particular, very foreign worlds. In Colin Coterill's case,Thailand rather than Smith's Botswana.
Guided by remarkable Jimm Juree, a young, out of work crime reporter, we are invited on her unofficial investigations while she navigates, assisted by her Grandfather, both bizarre and disturbing crimes with the background of becoming increasingly intimate with every member of her hilarious family.
The author's wry humor saturates the book, gently introducing us to a world that is exotic and destitute, and richly delightful.

What made the experience of listening to Grandad, There's a Head on the Beach the most enjoyable?
The reader was great, the characters wonderful and funny, plus I learned so much about Thailand and Laos.
Would you be willing to try another book from Colin Cotterill? Why or why not?
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.
Which scene was your favorite?
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.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I like to break up the books, they keep me company when I am working alone.
Any additional comments?
Mr. Cotterill keep them coming!
