Clever title You ll see once you read the book Another fine mystery and adventures for Dr Siri and his friends I just love the humor and slice of life way of living in Laos This series is one of my favorites.
Dr Siri and his gang are back A little bit older and now in retirement, Siri seems to be relaxed and cheeky His exploits are in the north of Laos at a time Vietnam has invaded Cambodia and in turn was invaded by China It s a fun book that pokes fun at the struggling Laos government, is cleverly written, provides some graphic murders and a lot of the power of the friendship that Dr Siri and his menagerie of waifs and orphans bring to each other.
