By Colin Cotterill
As ordinary, all is irregular in Dr Siri Paiboun's morgue. the great general practitioner and his staff are investigating the case of the 3 Epees: 3 ladies skewered via a sword during the middle. A wrongdoer has been apprehended, attempted and sentenced to demise. yet Siri isn't definite they've got the proper guy. regrettably, the #1 (and in basic terms) coroner of Laos isn't able to support someone - no longer even himself. As his birthday dawns, Siri reveals himself incarcerated and staring hunger and torture within the face. As traditional, his interest is in charge for his challenge, yet this time it seems to be as if his inquisitiveness may be the finish of him...
