Publisher Description

Laos, 1978: Dr. Siri Paiboun, a 72-year-old medical doctor, has unwillingly been appointed the national coroner of the new socialist Laos. His lab is underfunded, his boss is incompetent, and his support staff is quirky, to say the least. But Siri’s sense of humor gets him through his often frustrating days. When the body of the wife of a prominent politician comes through his morgue, Siri has reason to suspect the woman has been murdered. To get to the truth, Siri and his team face government secrets, spying neighbors, victim hauntings, Hmong shamans, botched romances, and other deadly dangers. Somehow, Siri must figure out a way to balance the will of the party and the will of the dead.

The Coroner’s Lunch

Very good. Brief also. I enjoyed it throughly! I hope that you do too! And it’s a series! More books!

Good story but hard to follow

I liked this book a lot, but it was hard to follow in places. Too many Laotian words without explanations, and not enough embedded reminders of who each character is. I will try more of this series though. Hopefully the author's skills improved.
