review 1: I started reading this after reading the Dr. Siri series, this one is set in modern Thailand and with a female protagonist. She moves with her mother and brother from a large city to a small town and is stuck trying to find her way, her family is crazy (so is she) and that is par...

review 1: Another convoluted, fun Colin Cotterill mystery about the elderly coroner of Laos. Siri is now retired but still solving mysteries with the aid of supernatural spirits and his team of friends. His wife's autobiography is woven in, and a powerful Frenchman she enraged when she was...

review 1: I really enjoyed this, with a few quibbles. It was hard for me to figure out just how realistic the white male author's portrayal of a Thai woman was. Possibly totally realistic, but my own lack of knowledge left me questioning it. Also, was the prejudice against Chinese and espe...

review 1: The murder mystery genre is more or less a century old and I imagine it is a challenge for a writer to write a story that hasn’t been told. The author takes on this challenge with a collection of extremely marginal characters such as ex crime reporter Jimm Juree and her sister w...

review 1: This, the sixth book in the Dr. Siri Paiboun compendium, strays a little into darker territory. No longer are we plagued with victims of war or politics; this is the stuff of serious forensics: a serial killer is on the loose in Laos! There is also the distracting problem of what...

review 1: Love Songs from a Shallow Grave is the seventh book in the Dr Siri series. Of the four that I’ve read it’s the strongest in terms of the plot, which is very well constructed and executed, blending a nice mystery puzzle with a strong sense of place and fascinating historical and ...

review 1: It's 1978 and a U.S. senator's son has been missing for 10 years. Dr. Siri Paiboun is asked to lead the Lao task force looking for the MIA pilot. The team from Laos must partner with Americans to accomplish their mission. There are hijinks aplenty, including the problems rela...

review 1: Another enjoyable read from Colin Cotterill. Having read many Dr Siri books plus Killed at the Whim of a Hat and The Axe Factor featuring Jimm Juror I know to expect a witty book full of comic characters. But you also get to know more about a country, Thailand in this case, than ...

review 1: The series continues, the main characters remain quirky and you just want to bring them home for a good feed.Dr Siri and his gang remind us of the good it does to you by being good and true to yourself. A serial murder is solved with not so much reliance on Dr Siri's links to th...
