This is my favorite Cotterill novel so far. I enjoyed his two first mysteries involving the Laoation Coroner, the lead in this mystery set in Thailand is a 30-something, crime reporter Jim Jurree, who is forced by circumstance to relocate to a small southern village in Thailand.
Every character is surprising and delightfully original. Quite an accomplishment. The reporter's older brother, turned sister, Sissy, a Transgender beauty queen, might just be my favorite for her inventive schemes.
It took a bit to get used to Park's accent - story told in first person - used for the Thai reporter. However, her ability to depict a wide range of unbelievably diverse characters won me over. I have not listened to other Jeany Park's performances.
A page turner enhanced by the author's detailed description of life in Communist Russia.
Leo and his wife are both multi-dimensional characters each faced with complex choices and challenges in life.
The narrator's accents and dramatic tempo heighten the experience of the drama.
One of the most heart wrenching openings to a novel. You have to keep reading.
Beautifully written. Maloney's performance is excellent. I could definitely listen to this book more than once.
This is the worst title I have ever listened to from audible. The story was potentially okay but the long drawn out repetititve tale drove me crazy and the narrator didn't have any way to improve this dismal story. Dont bother.
