This latest Dr. Siri Paiboun investigation follows the retired Laotian coroner, his wife Madame Daeng, and their friends as they investigate a trio of murders that have religious overtones that make life for everyone on both sides of the Mekhong River exciting.

When the Buddhist monk who is staying with Siri leaves a cryptic note on the refrigerator and then bicycles away without leaving a trace, Siri is off on this new adventure.

By the time it is concluded he and his wife will have had some breathtaking escapes and managed to run afoul of a number of government authorities and equally influential spiritualists, but they will also have saved an innocent man from a murder charge, exposed a corrupt police official and had a splendid time in Thailand.

Humor, lots of local color and a cast of slightly eccentric characters has made this long running series popular with readers who enjoy a little armchair traveling combined with their suspense yarns. If you are one of these folks you'll probably enjoy making Dr. Siri Paiboun's acquaintance.
