Book Synopsis

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.
