Publisher's Summary

Jimm Juree was a crime reporter for the Chiang Mai Daily Mail with a somewhat eccentric family. When she is forced to follow her family to a rural village on the coast of Southern Thailand, she’s convinced her career—maybe her life—is over. So when a van containing the skeletal remains of two hippies is inexplicably unearthed in a local farmer’s field, Jimm is thrilled. Shortly thereafter an abbot at a local Buddhist temple is viciously murdered.
Suddenly Jimm’s new life becomes somewhat more promising—and a lot more deadly. And if Jimm is to unravel the inexplicable events, it will take luck, perseverance, and the help of her entire family.


What the Critics Say

“Cotterill understands people and writes subtle humor like a master.” (Library Journal)
“May be the best new international mystery series since the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.” (Booklist)
“Cotterill’s excellent first in a new series . . . combines a wry narrative voice with an appealing picture of a world unfamiliar to most Americans.” (Publishers Weekly)

Because I had read all Cotterill's "Dr. Siri" series and loved every one for its humor and wonderful characters, I hesitated to listen to the first of this new series believing I would be disappointed. The opposite happened and I was delighted with his fresh characters and relieved that he continues to construct a good mystery laced with lots of humor. It's a four star mystery with an extra star for all the other goodies.

Good book, bad narrator

I like the author (Dr. Siri Paiboun series) and the book very much, but the narrator is very boring.
