In Vientiane, Laos, a booby-trapped corpse intended for Dr. Siri, the national coroner, has been delivered to the morgue. In his absence, only Nurse Dtui’s intervention saves the lives of the morgue attendants, visiting doctors, and Madame Daeng, Dr. Siri’s fiancée.
On his way back from a Communist Party meeting in the north, Dr. Siri is kidnapped by seven female Hmong villagers under the direction of the village elder so that he will—in the guise of Yeh Ming, the thousand-year-old shaman with whom he shares his body—exorcise the headman’s daughter, whose soul is possessed by a demon, and lift the curse of the pogo stick.

The characters and their humorous personalities and quirks and how they interact
Love the voice.
Read all his books in this series and wish there were more.
I really like this series but this book felt as if it had been written in a hurry and there were pieces of the story missing. I will continue to read the series but I would not recommend this book to anyone who does not already like the characters, and is prepared for a storyline full of holes.
