Thirty Three Teeth
The highly anticipated sequel to The Coroner's Lunch. Laos, 1977. Something wild and evil has been let loose in the city of Vientiane and a series of mutilated corpses lands in the morgue of Dr Siri Paiboun - the reluctant national coroner. Just as things in the capital start to get interesting, 72-year old Dr Siri is sent to the old royal capital Luang Prabang, where he becomes involved in the Communist Government's plot to rid the country of its king and all the royal spirits. Meanwhile, back in Vientiane, Dr Siri's helpers-Mr. Geung, a mentally challenged lab technician, and Nurse Dtui, whose nickname means "Fatty", investigate the strange deaths. But is the killer man or beast? It'll take all the coronial team's powers to crack this gruesome mystery. With a great sense of fun and a lively, loveable cast of characters, Thirty-Three Teeth will delight fans of The Coroner's Lunch and win Cotterill a whole new bunch of readers.
