“Another great book in the Dr. Siri series. I love all the characters in these books and so reading one of these books is like getting together with old friends and catching up on each other's lives.
In this instance it just happens that the friends are always involved in some wild adventures and this time they include a kidnapping for Dr. Siri and his hapless boss the judge by some beautiful women.
And for his colleagues at the morgue some thwarted assassination attempts and a hunt for the murderous "Lizard"!
Once again I love the description of not only the colorful people that always surround Dr. Siri but also the jungle and village that he spends a great deal of time in during his kidnapping.
Colin Cotterill paints a lovely picture with words as always and I had another great time reading this book.”
This is a great series - funny, interesting and searingly sad at times. There are a lot of Hmong and Laotian refugee families where I live and this series has given me some insight into what they were leaving.
