LoveReading View on Thirty-three Teeth

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.

Thirty-three Teeth Synopsis

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.
