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.
