Product Description

How do you respond when you wake up to find a severed head on your resort-front beach in the morning? If you’re frustrated ex-crime reporter Jimm Juree, you take action. With her former cop grandfather as back up, she sets out to discover how the poor fellow ended up where he did—and why. On their journey, with the rest of their disjointed family in tow, they uncover gruesome tales of piracy and slavery, violence and murder in the Gulf of Thailand. Are the authorities uninterested because they’re involved, or because the victims aren’t Thai? Whatever the reason, Jimm and her team are going it alone and their lives are under threat. And who exactly are those two elegant women in cabin three and why has the engine number of their car been filed away? Airport hostages and hand grenades, monkeys and naked policemen—once more the sublime and the ridiculous clash at the Gulf Bay Lovely Resort and Restaurant.


“The fast-paced, tense story features lots of quirky characters and humorous situations, all revealed through Guest’s pacing and tones. Fans of cozies, particularly those set in exotic locales, will enjoy Cotterill’s latest.”

“The best beach title around.”
      —New York Times

“The second installment of prolific Cotterill’s new series definitely puts the fun in family dysfunction. Jimm, an Asian Stephanie Plum, rattles steadily to a solution, with many hilarious episodes along the way.”

“Readers new to this series will laugh and enjoy Cotterill’s madcap and zany mystery. . . . The author’s natural gift for irony . . . is to be relished.”
      —Library Journal
