Jimm Juree was a crime reporter for the Chiang Mai Daily Mail with a somewhat eccentric family—a mother who might be drifting mentally; a grandfather—a retired cop—who rarely talks; a younger brother obsessed with body building, and a transgendered, former beauty pageant queen, former older brother. 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, with the temple’s monk and nun the only suspects.

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.

    " While this was a digestible mystery, it lacked the charm of Cotterill's Dr Siri books, and basically just kind of got us from point A to point B. Missable but probably fine for a long flight. "

    " A fun book to read. "

    " I would rank this as 3 and half stars. I kept putting the book down before I finally sat down and finished it off. It took a while for the main character to grow on me and even now, I'm not sure I would read a second book. I liked the setting, but it could have taken place any where. The mystery was really not set up so that you could figure out what had happened. I like to try to do that, so it was a little disappointing. But, there were some intriguing characters introduced and I did like that. "
