Publisher's Summary

Laos, 1979: Dr. Siri Paiboun, the twice retired ex-National Coroner of Laos, receives an unmarked package in the mail. Inside is a handwoven pha sin, a colorful traditional skirt worn in northern Laos. A lovely present, but who sent it to him, and why? And, more importantly, why is there a severed human finger stitched into the sin's lining? Siri is convinced someone is trying to send him a message and won't let the matter rest until he's figured it out. He finagles a trip up north to the province where the sin was made, not realizing he is embarking on a deadly scavenger hunt. Meanwhile, the northern Lao border is about to erupt into violence—and Dr. Siri and his entourage are walking right into the heart of the conflict.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better narrator would have improved this rating immensely.


Would you be willing to try another book from Colin Cotterill? Why or why not?

Yes there's a lot more to be had.


Would you be willing to try another one of Clive Chafers’s performances?

I would rather be dragged down the Mekong river by my ankles from a Yak cargo plane than give mr chafers another bite of the cherry.

Horrendous Narrator - where is Nigel Anthony?

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Just one of the worst narrators I have heard on Audible, very little intonation or characterisation to my mind, and not a patch on Nigel Anthony who has performed the other books in the Colin Cotterill series and is, for me, the voice of Dr Siri.
