The Coroner’s Lunch

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

Life has taken a funny turn for Siri Paiboun. After years in obscurity, his country needs him. He is to be their only coroner. Because he’s the only doctor left. It’s not as flattering as it could be, and when one of the leaders‘ wives turns up in his hot, shabby, smelly morgue, and he’s expected to solve her murder, things take a turn for the worse. He has no experience, training or equipment to speak of, and his only hope are his two trusty assistants – neither of whom know anything either – and his own mental resources.

Laos und Chaos, sagt ein Rezensent – und das trifft es wohl. “Cotterill has a wonderful sense of farce…a delightful book” (Telegraph) (325 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 287 Seiten noch günstig?

Love Songs from a Shallow Grave

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

As usual, all is abnormal in Dr Siri Paiboun’s morgue. The good doctor and his team are investigating the case of the Three Epées: three women skewered by a sword through the heart. A culprit has been apprehended, tried and sentenced to death. But Siri isn’t sure they have the right man. Unfortunately, the number one (and only) coroner of Laos isn’t in a position to help anyone – not even himself. As his birthday dawns, Siri finds himself incarcerated and staring starvation and torture in the face.

Frauen mit dem Schwert ermordet. “You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the ’70s. The humor is wonderful, too—very subtle, very British.” (New York Post) (67 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?

Grandad, There’s a Head on the Beach

Krimi von Colin Cotterill

What do you do when you find a severed head on the beach? With her former cop grandfather as back up, crime reporter Jimm Juree sets out to discover how the poor fellow got there. On their journey they uncover gruesome tales of piracy, slavery, violence and murder, yet the authorities show no interest at all. Is it because the victims aren’t Thai? Whatever the reason, Jimm and her team are going it alone.
