Publisher's Summary

Meet Ladarat Patalung - the first and only nurse detective in Thailand.
Two nights ago a young woman brought her husband into the emergency room of the Sriphat Hospital in Thailand, where he passed away. A guard thinks she remembers her coming in before but with a different husband - one who also died.
Ladarat Patalung, for one, would have been happier without a serial murderer - if there is one - loose in her hospital. Then again, she never expected to be a detective in the first place.
And now Ladarat has no choice but to investigate.
The first novel in a captivating new series by David Casarett, MD.

A charming book!

What a lovely, charming, gentle murder mystery. The heroine is a delightful character with a fresh if inexperienced approach to becoming a detective and using her deductive powers in northern Thailand. It is also an interesting insight into the Thai way of living and their joy of food. I do hope this is the beginning of a series. It is certainly up there with the detective stories from Laos and India . A joy to listen to!
