Jimm Juree was a crime reporter for the Chiang Mai Daily Mail with a somewhat eccentric family. When she is forced to follow her family to a rural village on the coast of Southern Thailand, she's convinced her career-maybe her life-is over. So when a van containing the skeletal remains of two hippies is inexplicably unearthed in a local farmer's field, Jimm is thrilled. Shortly thereafter an abbot at a local Buddhist temple is viciously murdered.Suddenly Jimm's new life becomes somewhat more promising-and a lot more deadly. And if Jimm is to unravel the inexplicable events, it will take luck, perseverance, and the help of her entire family.

"Here's something new: a screwball whodunit set in Southern Thailand. Cotterill's wisecracking heroine, Jimm, is a freelance crime reporter who completely out-sleuths the corrupt local police force on the case of an abbot who is murdered while wearing an implausible orange hat. Jimm has help from her mother, who may be going dotty; her monosyllabic grandfather, who used to be a policeman; and her computer-hacking sister, who used to be her brother. Unfortunately, Jeany Park attempts a plummy British accent for Jimm that doesn't come off. This could have been as much fun as a Janet Evanovitch/ Stephanie Plum fandango, which is saying a lot. You still may love it if you aren't too busy mourning the lost opportunity for a totally delightful listening experience. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
