Like the little girl Panoy I too wish I could reach up and tug on Dr Siri's fluffy white eyebrows hopefully convince him to tell a story or two about the spirits and his coroner's cases He's a delightful old man who is learning to appreciate new talents including a spirit provided gift of rhythm in his step Disco is a treasure of an adult tale with a lush foreign setting an intriguing mystery a fine balance of both darkness and humor and touches of spirits and black magic Dr Siri and Dtui are shipped off to rural Huaphan Province in northern Laos by Judge Haeng and find themselves staying at state Guesthouse Number One At Comrade Lit's reuests they investigate the mysterious surfacing of a mummified arm near the President's house The Huaphan Provine was the seat of the current Communist government during the revolution and both the reader and Dtui learn about the rebellion and Dr Siri's history with the local hospital Narrative is back to focusing on Dr Siri although we also spend some time following Gueng uite literally as he makes a tremendous journey across rural Laos The mystery and the mystical elements are both well done I happen to love the way the spirits give Dr Siri special insight but this time he combines investigative work with his ambiguous dreams Scattered throughout of course is commentary on the Communist regime the sort of deep ambivalence that comes from the perspective of a long and thoughtful life Following Geung also gives the opportunity to learn about the rural Lao and especially coping post revolution It is fascinating reading about the caves the rebel army used and their strategies for staying hidden from American planes One of the remarkable achievements of the series is how it is able to give the reader insight into fighting a war that indirectly involved Americans and yet not vilify either side I enjoy Cotterill's use of language especially his culturally contextual comparisons Take for instance the morning Mr Geung woke wrapped in a canvas tarpaulin like pork in a Chinese spring roll which brings a touch of the comedic with some unusual imagery Actually food analogies seem to freuently occur around Mr Geung who was no scarier than a Chinese dumpling Dtui's situation sat heavily on her mind like the carcass of an overweight sloth Then there's the throwaway lines of perfect ironic construction such as the two story building designed by Vietnamese rectangulists creating marvel at his ability to convey so many implications with so few words He also brings multiple layers of emotion to the story Dtui countered with a typical Lao Band Aid smile that covered no end of emotional cuts and bruises and Just like that the village had painlessly filled the gap like white blood corpuscles healing a wound and leaving no scarAn excellent series I'm excited to have the next waiting on my shelf

He body attached to the arm identify the corpse and discover how he diedThe autopsy provides some surprises but it is his gift as a shaman that enables the seventy two year old doctor to discover why the victim was buried alive and eventually the identity of his kill. I'm still very much enjoying Dr Siri and his eccentricities Usually they would begin to grate on me by now but I find him a lovely refreshing no bullshit kinda character On to the next adventure
