When his girlfriend takes a job in Thailand, Mischa Berlinski goes along for the ride, planning to enjoy himself and work as little as possible. But one evening a fellow expatriate tips him off to a story: a charismatic American anthropologist, Martiya van der Leun, has been found dead—a suicide—in the Thai prison where she was serving a life sentence for murder. Curious at first, Mischa is soon immersed in the details of her story. This brilliant, haunting novel expands into a mystery set among the Thai hill tribes, whose way of life became a battleground for the missionaries and the scientists living among them.

    " Great book about anthropology, missionaries, and Thailand. I loved all the imagery from Thailand and recognized a lot of the places the author was talking about...it's a great book if you've been to Thailand or SE Asia. "

    " High marks for this one might be due to to my own love of Chiang Mai and the Morse Family, and my fascination with Hill Tribes. Berlinski well-captures how immersion in another culture can transform a soul. I laughed out loud at his descriptions of expats and expats who are missionaries. Some of his paragraphs found me sitting on a little plastic stool in Bangkok, slurping noodles. Others found me wandering through Chiang Mai. A must read for my ELIC friends, especially those of the ATC / Chiang Mai era. "
