Love Songs From a Shallow Grave (Dr Siri Paiboun Mystery 7) by Colin Cotterill - Quercus Publishing Plc (2010), Paperback, 272 pages [Our New Books - LibraryThing]

From the very first book in the Dr Siri series (The Coroner's Lunch) I've been completely hooked by this wonderful character, and the fantastic setting.  There is such a sense of place and culture in this series that it's just irresistable - so the books are very much grab as soon as they are available.

I'm really looking forward to reading this one.

Three young Laotian women have died of fencing sword wounds. Each of them had studied abroad in an Eastern bloc country. Before he can complete his investigation, Dr. Siri is lured to Cambodia by a free all expenses paid trip. Accused of spying for the Vietnamese, he is imprisoned, beaten and threatened with death. The Khmer Rouge are relentless—it is touch and go for the dauntless, now seventy-four-year-old national—and only—coroner of Laos.
