i feel i should have been more diligent about my author citations at the end of this essay. i gave no one any reason to read any of those authors i have enjoyed so much
i shall start with Colin Cotterill
who is English, lives in Thailand and writes very exciting mystery/cum histories of perhaps predominantly Laos. They are super exciting, informative, well written and with fine humor. two titles: the attention grabber: "Grandad There's
A Head On the Beach", but mostly those involving DrSiri in Laos one of which is "Coroner's Lunch", another "Disco For the Departed." Highly recommended.
