Praise for "Anarchy and Old Dogs"
"A series of terrifically beguiling detective novels . . . Whimsical, more personal stories that feature Siri and an equally memorable set of supporting characters . . . A wry, seasoned, off hand style that has been the secret weapon of this unexpectedly blithe and charming series."
--Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"
"Cotterill's portrait of his world gains depth and breath. Using a twisty mystery as a MacGuffin, he takes droll aim at the absurdities of recent history, all the more fascinating for their plausibility."
"Cotterill's delightful fourth novel to feature Dr. Siri Paiboun . . . nicely blends the supernatural, humor and intrigue . . . This sometimes slapstick, sometimes serious, but always lively mystery is sure to bring the author many new readers."
"Think "What's Up, Tiger Lily" with Mao taking over for Woody Allen."
--Bloomberg.com Praise for the Dr. Siri series
"Siri's lingering idealism, hidden beneath his cynical--and often hilarious--digs at the government, provide unexpected emotional depth."
"You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the '70s. The humor is wonderful, too--very subtle, very British."
"Humane and hilarious . . . The charmingly convoluted tale that results is good fun, better than most crime fiction."
