Thirty-Three Teeth: The Dr. Siri Investigations, Book 2 | [Colin Cotterill]

Thirty-Three Teeth: The Dr. Siri Investigations, Book 2

Feisty Dr. Siri Paiboun is no respecter of persons or party; at his age he feels he can afford to be independent. In this, the second novel in the series, he travels to Luang Prabang, where he communes with the deposed king who is resigned to his fate: it was predicted long ago. And he attends a conference of shamans called by the Communist Party to deliver an ultimatum to the spirits: obey party orders or get out.

Publisher's Summary

Feisty Dr. Siri Paiboun is no respecter of persons or party; at his age he feels he can afford to be independent. In this, the second novel in the series, he travels to Luang Prabang, where he communes with the deposed king who is resigned to his fate: it was predicted long ago. And he attends a conference of shamans called by the Communist Party to deliver an ultimatum to the spirits: obey party orders or get out. But as a series of mutilated corpses arrives in Dr. Siri’s morgue, and Nurse Dtui is menaced, he must use all his powers—forensic and shamanic—to discover the creature—animal or spirit—that has been slaying the innocent.

Crack another case with Dr. Siri.

What the Critics Say

“The quasi-mystical story keeps a perfect balance between the modern mysteries of forensic science and the ancient secrets of the spirit world as the cranky coroner tries to resolve a politically sensitive case involving the deposed king without riling the authorities.” (New York Times Book Review)

    Have re-discovered "quality time." Evenings listening to good books have replaced mindless tv watching. What a difference!

    "Parts of this book were very interesting--not all"
    What disappointed you about Thirty-Three Teeth?

    Hard to mix a detective story with the fantastical. Loved the local lore, spiritual side, but not when it went so far as to be totally unbelievable. Yes, I think one was meant to find a way to tolerate that discomfort (of resolving the believable with the unbelievable--even the premise of the book, perhaps). But I'd rather have one thing or the other. That's just my taste--and probably no commentary on the skill of the author/narrator.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I very much liked the passages into the spiritual history of the people of Laos. I liked it all till it got to a point where it just pushed it too far for my taste. (Might greatly appeal to others). I appreciate history and spirituality--just somehow did not come together for me here.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Thirty-Three Teeth?

    One at the end--do not want to be a spoiler--but a scene where a critical incident throughout the book came to a climax was too much of a step beyond my personal comfort zone.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think that my discomfort with this book should keep other people from reading it. I am speaking more about my own tastes in reading. The idea of the book is actually pretty neat--bringing old world and new together--and a world that most westerners don't really know much about in any fashion. That part was actually fascinating. But there is a point beyond which I'm not very interested in suspending belief--if it is meant to be a mystery. That's not my cup of tea--but could very well be someone else's. I would recommend people try this book--and decide for themselves. It is different--I certainly will say that.
