This Dr. Siri Paiboun mystery depicts Cotterill’s lovable Laotian characters as they sort out a series of violent events with supernatural dimensions. Clive Chafer, narrator of a number of Dr. Siri mysteries, does a solid job. The story takes place in the postwar shambles of Laos and Thailand in 1979. Chafer’s voice is rich and engaging. He makes challenging Thai and Lao names and vocabulary accessible to an English-speaking audience. His relatively leisurely pace allows the listener to stay with Cotterill’s often surprising plot twists. Siri Paiboun mysteries are potentially challenging audiobooks because the names can blend together and the author’s abrupt shifts of scene in the middle of chapters can be confusing.
