Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is very special. It is the second in a series which you will enjoy on its own but appreciate a lot more if you read the first too (The Coroner’s Lunch). We are in Laos, 18 months into the communist regime, but the old beliefs in spirits and magic cannot be crushed. Reluctant coroner, Dr Siri, old, wise and with a strong belief in the spirit world, is a wonderful creation as are his two rather eccentric assistants. I cannot recommend this highly enough. It has a sort of fairytale magic and yet the strange occurrences have simple explanations. It is definitely a must-read, once tried you’re hooked.

Comparison: Alexander McCall Smith, Tony Hillerman, Nury Vittachi.

Dr Siri Paiboun series:
1. The Coroner's Lunch
2. Thirty-Three Teeth
3. Disco for the Departed

Synopsis

Thirty-three Teeth by Colin Cotterill

Dr Siri Paiboun has rather enjoyed his first five months in office. Now, as hot-season nights close in, Siri is spirited away from Laos' steamy capital on a Matter of National Security. Arriving in Luang Prabang, he's a busy man, examining carbonized corpses, dining with the deposed king and being rescued by the ghost of an elephant.

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.
