Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring/Summer '09 Reading Group List
“Set in Laos in 1975, The Coroner's Lunch introduces a terrific new sleuth, Dr. Siri Paiboun, a 72-year-old Paris-trained doctor, the new national coroner. He knows nothing about forensic medicine but he does know about truth and corruption in high places. This enthralling book is a keeper, with a fascinating setting and an absolutely lovable and intriguing sleuth.”
-- Pat Kehde, The Raven Bookstore, Lawrence, KS


Description
1975 Communism has taken over Laos, and Dr. Siri Paiboun, a seventy-two-year-old doctor, is appointed national coroner. He is expected to come up with the answers the party wants, but the clever, charming Dr. Siri is immune to bureaucratic pressure.
