Product Overview

Praise for "Thirty-Three Teeth":

"Paiboun's droll wit and Cotterill's engaging plot twists keep things energetic; the rather grisly murders are offset by comedy. The elegant, elderly Paiboun seems an unlikely vehicle to carry a series but he does so with charm and aplomb."-"Entertainment Weekly"

"The series neatly manages to include an engrossing mystery-political and folk history and a lot of sly satire."-"Day to Day," NPR

"Keeps a perfect balance between the modern mysteries of forensic science and the ancient secrets of the spirit world."-"The New York Times Book Review"

Feisty Dr. Siri Paiboun is no respecter of persons or Party; at his age he feels he can afford to be independent. 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.

Colin Cotterill was born in London in 1952. He has taught in Australia, the United States and Japan, and has lived in Thailand, on the Burmese border and in Laos. He lives in Chiang mai in northern Thailand.
