Description
Following a rash but perhaps not unexpected moment of insolence, Laos's reluctant national coroner Dr. Siri Paiboun is forced to go on a road trip with Judge Haeng and the Justice Department. On a deserted jungle trail they are ambushed and Siri is kidnapped by Hmong insurgents. His only route to freedom is to exorcise the village headman's daughter of demonic possession by, yes, a pogo stick. Meanwhile, a newly pregnant Nurse Dtui and Dr. Siri's fiancé Madame Daeng are left alone to track down an assassin intent on wiping out the mortuary staff. Before the case is solved they'll face exploding corpses, undead muggers, and geriatric gunslingers.

"In this delightful, fifth Dr. Siri novel set in late 1970s Laos, [Colin] Cotterill once again manages a winning combination of elements: crisp plotting, exotic locations, endearing characters, political satire, witty dialogue, otherworldly phenomena, and a deep understanding of Hmong culture."—School Library Journal
