Publisher's Summary

Laos, 1979: Dr. Siri Paiboun, the twice retired ex-National Coroner of Laos, receives an unmarked package in the mail. Inside is a handwoven pha sin, a colorful traditional skirt worn in northern Laos. A lovely present, but who sent it to him, and why? And, more importantly, why is there a severed human finger stitched into the sin's lining? Siri is convinced someone is trying to send him a message and won't let the matter rest until he's figured it out. He finagles a trip up north to the province where the sin was made, not realizing he is embarking on a deadly scavenger hunt. Meanwhile, the northern Lao border is about to erupt into violence—and Dr. Siri and his entourage are walking right into the heart of the conflict.

Please keep Dr. Siri alive!

What made the experience of listening to Six and a Half Deadly Sins the most enjoyable?

I love these books, and have listened to all of them many times. This is not the best one,
but it's better than no Dr. Siri, so I am glad to have it. I couldn't get into his other series at all. I love the history of Laos and the characters in this series.

I love these books which are staged in 1970s Laos and present history and culture as the fundamental context of the story. The characters are strong and memorable. I truly hope author Cotterill keeps writing this particular series.
