About This Item

New York: Soho, August 2007. Trade Paperback. Near Fine. Text unmarked. Spine straight and tight with slight crease to lower half. Covers clean and bright. Not from a library. Very light reading wear to edges and corners. 248 pages.

Dr Siri Paiboun, reluctant national coroner of the People's Democratic Republic of Laos, is summoned to a remote location in the mountains of Huaphan Province, where for years the leaders of the current government had hidden out in caves, waiting to assume power. Now, as a major celebration of the new regime is scheduled to take place, an arm is found protruding from the concrete walk that was laid from the President's former cave hideout to his new house beneath the cliffs. Dr Siri is ordered to supervise the disinterment of the body attached to the arm, identify the corpse, and discover how he died.

Synopsis

Colin Cotterill was born in London in 1952. He has taught in Australia, the U.S. and Japan, and has lived in Thailand, on the Burmese border and in Laos. He lives in Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand.
