Description
Jimm Juree, who was well on her way to becoming the primary crime reporter for the major daily newspaper in Chiang Mai, is less than thrilled to have lost her job and relocated to a place where nothing ever happens. When she learns that a head has washed up on the beach, she greets the news with mixed emotions. It's tragic, of course, but this could be the sort of sensational murder that would get her a byline in a major daily-if she still worked for one. Instead, all she can do is find out who was murdered and why.With her former cop grandfather as back up, she sets out to discover how the poor fellow ended up where he did-and why. On their journey, with the rest of their disjointed family in tow, they uncover gruesome tales of piracy and slavery, violence and murder in the Gulf of Thailand. Are the authorities uninterested because they're involved, or because the victims aren't Thai? Whatever the reason, Jimm and her team are going it alone and their lives are under threat. And who exactly are those two elegant women in cabin three and why has the engine number of their car been filed away? Airport hostages and hand grenades, monkeys and naked policemen-once more the sublime and the ridiculous clash at the Gulf Bay Lovely Resort and Restaurant.

        April 23, 2012
        Cotterill effortlessly merges murder and mirth in his second light mystery featuring crime reporter Jimm Juree (after 2011’s Killed at the Whim of a Hat). Juree, who has reluctantly joined her eccentric family in rural Thailand, channels Bertie Wooster on making a grim find: “It’s always a bother to decide who to tell when you find a head on the beach.” Soon after her discovery, she runs afoul of two thugs from the Southern Rescue Mission Foundation, a questionable charitable organization “whose duty it was to facilitate the journey of the soul to a better place.” The SRMers remind Juree that she didn’t see anything, a threat that only emboldens her to dig deeper. Impressively, the author manages to insert a serious human rights problem amid the larking around without hitting a false note, and is on track to duplicate the acclaim and commercial success of his Dr. Siri series (Slash and Burn, etc.).
