Undecided as whether to release this on International BookCrossing Day 2017, Friday 21 April or not as I have birthday book giving and holiday release plans afoot also! In the interim, registration:

Cover: ‘Richer plots that Alexander McCall Smith’s African detective stories, but the same comic charm. Sunday Times

In Laos in the year 1976, the royal family has been deposed and the Communists have taken over. Despite a total lack of training experience and inclination, Dr Siri Paiboun has just been appointed State Coroner for the Lao People’s Democratic Republic. . .because he’s the only doctor left in Laos.
But when the wife of a Party Leader is wheeled into the morgue, the bodies of tortured Vietnamese soldiers start bobbing to the surface of a Laotian lake, and an international crisis looms. . .all eyes turn to the new coroner

Praise for Thirty-Three Teeth
‘The National coroner of Laos is an endearing, energetic seventy-something, with a lively sense of humour… Fascinating background, engaging characters and witty dialogue’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
‘Cotterill writes in a wonderfully wry, witty way that leaves me laughing out loud and wanting more’ OXFORD TIMES
‘A very welcome follow up the The Coronor’s Lunch, bringing back the delightful cast of characters. . . entertaining and very witty’ TANGLED WEB

In enthusiastic, though sadly uninformed, keenness to grasp hold of more books in this series I appear to have bagged a second copy of THE CORONER’S LUNCH, book 1 in series. This copy then can head into the world of BookCrossing travel soon. Not started on this series so far, therefore there are no reading notes as yet.

Actually I have a number of release project ideas for this but until I settle on one I will make it ‘Available’ in case another bookcrosser is searching for it.

Happy days and notification of current plan – Happy days as it turns out that I managed to pick up a two copies of THE CORONER'S LUNCH so this copy is heading off in Plumb-crazy’s World of Crime Book Box.
---------------------

With a charmingly light and deliciously subversive turn of humour Cotterill introduces us to the life and work of Dr Siri Paiboun, from his shocked introduction into the role of State Coroner . . . OK – small hic-up here I haven’t finessed my reading notes so will have to return and add them once complete!

Really enjoyed the character of Dr Siri, less sure about the spirits etc. I may need to read a few more of these to make up my mind ;)

Returning to the 2019 World of Crime bookbox.
