About this audiobook

Colin Cotterill, one of Soho's bestselling authors, returns with a signature dark, witty mystery set in 1970s Communist Laos As an escalating war edges into Communist Laos, feisty septugenarian ex-national coroner Dr. Siri Paiboun is preoccupied with another matter: tracing a mysterious message he's received in the form of a severed finger. One of Soho Crime's all-time bestselling series, always widely and well-reviewed (Love Songs from a Shallow Grave was NYTCrime Novel of the Year). Full of dark comedy, offbeat characters, and poignant depiction of Laos at a moment of political upheaval--very different from anything else out there. Follows a paperback repackage of the entire series with a fresh new look, including a $9.99 Passport to Crime edition of The Coroner's Lunch. Colin has a huge fan base--a legitimate cult favorite series. Praise for The Woman Who Wouldn't Die "Laughter is a subversive weapon when you live under a repressive regime. That's the take-away lesson from Colin Cotterill's gravely funny novels set in Indochina in the 1970s."--The New York Times Book Review "The latest Dr. Paiboun novel by Colin Cotterill, showcases both author and detective at the top of their games. It's an entertaining and captivating mystery underpinned by a fascinating exploration of the tangled history of Laos."--Christian Science Monitor Series Overview: 72-year-old Dr. Siri Paiboun is less than enthusiastic in 1974 when the new Communist government of Laos pulls him out of retirement to become the National Coroner. Siri, who has no forensic background, about this honor. But soon he realizes his new position puts him in the unique position of identifying murder victims. Author Bio:Colin Cotterill is the Dilys Award-winning author of nine other books in the Dr. Siri Paiboun series: The Coroner's Lunch, Thirty-Three Teeth, Disco for the Departed, Anarchy and Old Dogs, Curse of the Pogo Stick, The Merry Misogynist, Love Songs from a Shallow Grave, Slash and Burn, and The Woman Who Wouldn't Die.
