Meet Ladarat Patalung - the first and only nurse detective in Thailand.
Two nights ago, a young woman brought her husband into the emergency room of the Sriphat Hospital in Thailand, where he passed away. A guard thinks she remembers her coming in before, but with a different husband - one who also died.
Ladarat Patalung, for one, would have been happier without a serial murderer-if there is one -- loose in her hospital. Then again, she never expected to be a detective in the first place.
And now, Ladarat has no choice but to investigate...
The first novel in a captivating new series by David Casarett, M.D.

I enjoy reading a good mystery. This book was a surprisingly good change of pace for a mystery. I have lived in Thailand for the past 9 years. The author’s insight into Thais and their culture are well described.
