Product Description

Jimm Juree was a crime reporter for the Chiang Mai Daily Mail with a somewhat eccentric family. When she is forced to follow her family to a rural village on the coast of Southern Thailand, she’s convinced her career—maybe her life—is over. So when a van containing the skeletal remains of two hippies is inexplicably unearthed in a local farmer’s field, Jimm is thrilled. Shortly thereafter an abbot at a local Buddhist temple is viciously murdered.

Suddenly Jimm’s new life becomes somewhat more promising—and a lot more deadly. And if Jimm is to unravel the inexplicable events, it will take luck, perseverance, and the help of her entire family.


“Jeany Park provides a great range in portraying Jimm, her eccentric family, the police, and other characters. This will appeal to those who enjoy mysteries set in exotic locations and books featuring clever female protagonists and cozy fans.”
      —Library Journal [starred review] and Best of the Year Selection

“Park’s performance proves as entertaining as it is charming.”
      —Publishers Weekly

“Cotterill’s sense of humor is really what drives this. . . . Jeany Park was a good choice for the narration. . . . Her light, satirical tone matches that of the book perfectly.”
      —Audiobook Heaven

“A beautifully crafted look at life with a Thai twist. . . . Cotterill’s language is musical, with an offbeat cadence. . . . A solid plot runs neck and neck with the plain and simple joy of . . . a crackerjack narrative filled with droll humor and small asides that are never throwaways.”

“Cotterill understands people and writes subtle humor like a master.”
      —Library Journal [HC starred review]

“May be the best new international mystery series since the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.”
      —Booklist [starred review]

“An affirmation that the universal language of nutty families is spoken everywhere.”
      —Charlotte Observer
