Synopsis

The Axe Factor A Jimm Juree Novel by Colin Cotterill

Shortlisted for the Goldsboro Last Laugh Award at CrimeFest 2014.

On the gulf of Thailand, the Juree family are managing their run-down beach resort for the second year - still stalked by disaster. Daughter Jimm has a new love in her life, but finds herself pursued by another man with a markedly different agenda in mind. Meanwhile, Jimm's new case is that of Dr. Somluk, a champion of the rights of rural mothers, who is missing following a run-in with the marketeers of infant formula. As ever, there is blood, brine and bedlam aplenty at the Gulf Bay Lovely Resort.

About the Author

Colin Cotterill

Colin Cotterill was born in London and trained as a teacher and set off on a world tour that didn't ever come to an end. He worked as a Physical Education instructor in Israel, a primary school teacher in Australia, a counselor for educationally handicapped adults in the US, and a university lecturer in Japan. But the greater part of his latter years has been spent in Southeast Asia. Colin has taught and trained teachers in Thailand and on the Burmese border. He spent several years in Laos, initially with UNESCO and wrote and produced a forty-programme language teaching series; English By Accident, for Thai national television.

All the while, Colin continued with his two other passions; cartooning and writing. He contributed regular columns for the Bangkok Post but had little time to write. It wasn't until his work with trafficked children that he found himself sufficiently stimulated to put together his first novel, The Night Bastard (Suk's Editions. 2000).

Colin is married and lives in a fishing community on the Gulf of Siam with his wife, Jessi, and two very annoying dogs.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
