Following a rash but perhaps not unexpected moment of insolence, Dr. Siri 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 of its demon – a task he has no idea how to accomplish. Newly pregnant Nurse Dtui and Dr. Siri’s fiance, Madame Daeng, are left alone to track down an assassin intent on wiping out the mortuary staff.

Dr Siri Paiboun may be in his seventy-third year, but he’s still as sturdy as a jungle boar – and as crafty as one. Reluctant coroner to the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, he’s been despatched to the country’s mountainous north where the sudden appearance of a mummified arm protruding from a concrete path laid in front of the President’s new mansion has caused an understandable degree of embarrassment. Dr Siri’s disinterment and autopsy of the body attached to the arm provide some grisly surprises but it is his gifts as a shaman that put the septuagenarian doctor on the trail of the killer.
