Seventy-two-year-old Siri Paiboun is an unlikely candidate for chief coroner in newly communist Laos, but as the only doctor left in the state there's not much choice.When a party leader's wife turns up dead and Vietnamese bodies surface in a nearby lake, all eyes turn to Dr Siri. Faced with an emerging international crisis, Siri will have to enlist old friends, tribal shamans, forensic deduction, and some good old-fashioned sleuthing before he can discover quite what's going on.More
"Siri's greatest assets are his charm, persistence and dry humour....A refreshing antidote to hi-tech crime busting." (Guardian)
"Cotterill's novels have richer plots than Alexander McCall Smith's African detective stories, but the same comic charm." (Sunday Times)

The narration is excellent. All the characters have a clear identity - Nigel Anthony brings real depth to each voice
The story was very good, and the location was fascinating. I found myself researching the history of Laos to find out more about the communist regime and the people.
I loved Siri, very funny and very clever. Nigel Anthony is an amazing narrator - new favourite.
I actually laughed out loud at the conversations between Siri and Civilai. The friendly bantering back and forth is very amusing
I wish there were more than 4 books on audible - any new audiobooks would HAVE to be narrated by Nigel Anthony! The characters are so fixed in my mind now!
a very good listen
