Dr Siri’s bagged himself a holiday with his friends – an all-expenses-paid trip to the mountains of Laos. He is to assist a US-funded search for a lost CIA pilot – Boyd Bowry – missing since 1968, though Siri strongly suspects that when the helicopter exploded, the pilot followed suit. But, just hours into the trip, it becomes apparent that ulterior motives are at work within the group and those associated with the airman start dropping like the insects that frequent the surrounding landscape.
Der achte Band der Serie. “Any crime fan who hasn’t discovered the Dr. Siri books should start here and then work back. This is the eighth and best, and it’s been far too long since book seven.” (The Globe and Mail) (97 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 385 Seiten noch günstig?
When crime reporter Jimm Juree is forced to quit the city for a fishing village on the Gulf of Siam, she expects much in her life to change. Quiet will replace quick, and, surely, crime will give way to calm. There goes the career, then. Not a chance. No sooner has she settled than a surprise discovery springs from a local well. Two skeletons: both wearing the signs of thirty years of decay, with one also wearing a hat. And, if this wasn’t uncommon enough, a monk is soon killed in a neighbouring town.
Band 1 der Jimm Juree Serie. “I love Colin Cotterill just for introducing me to southeast Asia but the characters are marvelous. They are all a little „off“, but then if you wrote about most people they would be.” (Leserin) (111 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 321 Seiten noch günstig?
On the gulf of Thailand, the Juree family are managing their run-down beach resort for the second year – still stalked by disaster. Daughter Jimm has a new love in her life, but finds herself pursued by another man with a markedly different agenda in mind. Meanwhile, Jimm’s new case is that of Dr. Somluk, a champion of the rights of rural mothers, who is missing following a run-in with the marketeers of infant formula.
Band 1 der Jimm Juree Serie. “Jimm Juree, the intrepid journalist in the deepest South of Thailand and her family entourage of colourful and occasionally outrageous characters do it again. Families bond, romances are kindled (and extinguished) and murders are solved, all in the inimitable Cotterill style,” (Leser) (52 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 303 Seiten noch günstig?
