Description



About the Book



"A fascinating mystery set in Thailand in the vein of Alexander McCall Smith, where a nurse ethicist turns detective. Ladarat Patalung, for one, would have been happier without a serial murderer in her life. Then again, she never meant to be a detective in the first place. But while content in her role at the Chaing Mai Hospital in Thailand as the nurse ethicist, Ladarat couldn't resist when police detective Kuhn Wiriya came to her with his dilemma. Two nights ago, a young woman brought her husband to the emergency room, where he passed away. Now someone remembers her coming in before, with a different husband (who also died). Is there a serial killer on the loose? One who likes to murder her husbands? And what else can one lone nurse ethicist do about it, but investigate?"--



Book Synopsis



Meet Ladarat Patalung -- the first and only nurse detective in Thailand.

Two nights ago, a young woman brought her husband into the emergency room of the Sriphat Hospital in Thailand, where he passed away. A guard thinks she remembers her coming in before, but with a different husband -- one who also died.

Ladarat Patalung, for one, would have been happier without a serial murderer -- if there is one -- loose in her hospital. Then again, she never expected to be a detective in the first place.

And now, Ladarat has no choice but to investigate...

The first novel in a captivating new series by David Casarett, M.D.



Review Quotes




"A charming mystery...a delight."--Vaseem Khan, author of the Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series

"A wonderful debut novel full of the sights, sounds and senses of Thailand mixed in with one hell of a great plot and a heroine -- Ladarat Patalung -- who stays with you long after the book is closed. Bring on the second in the series."--Ian Hamilton, author of the Ava Lee novels

"Appealing."--Kirkus

"I love this book. It's not only a killer mystery, but it also introduces a uniquely appealing central character and gives us a warm and accurate look into the Thai heart."--Timothy Hallinan, author of the Junior Bender mysteries and the Poke Rafferty Bangkok thrillers

A fun read... which I polished off in one day.--The Berkshire Eagle
