Description

What do you do when you find a severed head on the beach? With her former cop grandfather as back up, crime reporter Jimm Juree sets out to discover how the poor fellow got there. On their journey they uncover gruesome tales of piracy, slavery, violence and murder, yet the authorities show no interest at all. Is it because the victims aren't Thai? Whatever the reason, Jimm and her team are going it alone. Airport hostages and hand grenades, monkeys and naked policemen - once more the sublime and the ridiculous clash in the Gulf of Thailand.show more

Review quote

'Cotterill's fiction has been compared to Alexander McCall Smith. It is far more complex and perceptive: intelligent exotica' Independent. * Independent * 'The fast-paced plot finishes with a particularly tense climax ... Cotterill masterfully blends real-world issues [...] and his trademark humor' Booklist. * Booklist * 'A great story, very much of the now. I laughed, I was close to tears ... I couldn't turn the pages fast enough' bookbag.com. * bookbag.com *show more
