I loved Dr Siri and was diffident when Colin Cotterill moved on to Jimm Juree, but I need not have feared. She's an interesting character and the story was enjoyable,

I loved Coterill's Dr. Siri series and was very hopeful about this new series. While it took me some time to get used to the new characters (I missed Dr. Siri), I loved them by the end. It will be a good series.

This series has the potential to equal Cotterill's wonderful Dr Siri (the coroner in 1970's Laos) series.

Set in Thailand. Like the #1 Ladies Detective Agency. Very fun and funny. Not gruesome.

After several attempts to read it, I gave up I found it uninteresting. I greatly enjoy his Dr. Siri Series.

Fun quick read. Main character has a great sense of humour. Gives a different perspective in Thai life and times.
