Description
Dr. Siri Paiboun, one of the last doctors left in Laos after the Communist takeover, has been drafted to be national coroner. He is untrained for the job, but this independent seventy-two-year-old has an outstanding qualification for the role: curiosity. And he does not mind incurring the wrath of the party’s hierarchy as he unravels mysterious murders, because the spirits of the dead are on his side—and a little too close for comfort more often than he would like. With the help of his newly appointed secretary, the ambitious and shrewd Dtui, and Mr. Geung, the Down Syndrome­–afflicted morgue assistant, Dr. Paiboun performs autopsies and begins to solve the mysteries relating to a series of deaths by what seem to be bear bites, to explain why the government official ran at full speed through a seventh-story window and fell to his death, and to discover the origins of the two charred bodies from the crashed helicopter in the temple at Luang Prabang. As it turns out, not surprisingly, not all is peaceful and calm in the new Communist paradise of Laos.

In this, the second novel in the series, he travels to Luang Prabang, where he communes with the deposed king who is resigned to his fate: it was predicted long ago. And he attends a conference of shamans called by the Communist Party to deliver an ultimatum to the spirits: obey party orders or get out. But as a series of mutilated corpses arrives in Dr. Siri's morgue, and Nurse Dtui is menaced, he must use all his powers-forensic and shamanic-to discover the creature-animal or spirit-that has been slaying the innocent., Historical fiction., Laos, MWT10024853, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Mystery & Detective; Occult & Supernatural; Fiction, Mystery fiction., New York :Soho Press,c2005., Old age, Older people, Open Road Media Mystery & Thriller2014, PR6053.O778T47 2005, Paiboun, Siri, Doctor (Fictitious character), Physicians, Read by Clive Chafer., TBX, TBXdistributor, The Dr. Siri investigations ;, Thirty-Three Teeth, Thirty-three teeth /Colin Cotterill., Thirty-three teethColin Cotterill., TotalBooxdistributor, Unabridged., Vendor-supplied metadata, [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc. ,2011., a-ls---, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, eng, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9781455118885_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
