Praise for I Shot the Buddha

BookPage Best Mystery of 2016

—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review 

“Terrifically entertaining.”
—Adam Woog, The Seattle Times

“[Siri] is the most wonderfully human of heroes.”
—The Christian Science Monitor

“Filled with magic and quirkiness… A madcap and international caper.”
—Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

“Cotterill’s twisty mystery plot will entertain readers while his cast of eccentric characters charms.”

“Highly unusual and immensely appealing.”
—Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine

“Stunning . . . This series offers unfailingly satisfying reading, especially so for the glimpses we get into the still-revolutionary characters of Siri and Madame Daeng, both bursting with caustic wit and adventurous spirit.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“Cotterill excels in the portrayal of potentially serious and momentous topics with lighthearted humor, imbuing his characters with grace and empathy in the midst of a particularly difficult chapter of Southeast Asia’s history.”
BookPage, Top Pick in Mystery

“Highly entertaining.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Praise for Six and a Half Deadly Sins

“Dr. Siri and his misfit friends have relied on caustic humor to stay sane . . . The question is: Can his cynical sense of humor get him out of this jam?”
The New York Times Book Review

“A gladdening complement to many mystery-reader’s table . . . If you are unfamiliar with Paiboun works, it is time to crawl out of whatever cave you have been living in. This is for you.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“Always delightful . . . the doctor and his profoundly eccentric friends, wife and (now former) colleagues retain their sardonic senses of humor in a vexing and sometimes scary time.”
The Seattle Times

“A rollicking installment . . . Guaranteed to delight fans and new readers alike.”
