Currently Reading - Love Songs from A Shallow Grave, Colin Cotterill

I was so pleased to spy this book in Readers Feast in Melbourne when I was down there last month, and very pleased that I noticed it sitting there when I was wondering around looking for something to follow up from The Ihaka Trilogy - sometimes settling for something new after such a tremendous set of 3 books can be tricky.  Of course the only problem is that now I'm waiting for another Dr Siri to hang onto as my perfect reading option....

From the Blurb:

As usual, all is abnormal in Dr Siri Paiboun's morgue.  The good doctor and his team are investigating the case of the Three Epées:  three women skewered by a sword through the heart.  A culprit has been apprehended, tried and sentenced to death.  But Siri isn't sure they have the right man.

Opening Lines:

I celebrate the dawn of my seventy-fourth birthday hand-cuffed to a lead pipe.  I'd had something more traditional in mind; a few drinks with my new wife, some gay mo lum music on the record player, shellfish plucked fresh from the Mekhong.
