Praise

Praise for The Rat-Catchers’ Olympics

“Hilarious.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Cotterill has a gift for tempering bad stuff—specifically, the baffling and chaotic political climate of communism circa 1980—with gently ironic humor and frequent doses of slightly kooky occultism. His books are thus a welcome balm for our own current baffling and chaotic political climate.”
—The Seattle Times

“Very entertaining.”
—WYSO, Ohio Public Radio

“The book ends with a rat-catching competition that is as bizarre as Dr. Siri’s wacky sense of humor. This is a unique series.”
—Dayton Daily News

“The Dr. Siri books are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, sobering, convoluted, historical and endlessly entertaining . . . This series will have you reading (and laughing) well after most people in your household are sound asleep.”
BookPage, Top Pick  

Praise for the Dr. Siri Paiboun Mysteries


“Dazzling.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Terrifically entertaining.”
The Seattle Times

“Unpredictable . . . Tragically funny and magically sublime.”
Entertainment Weekly
 
“You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the ’70s. The humor is wonderful, too.”
New York Post
 
“The Dr. Siri books are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, sobering, convoluted, historical and endlessly entertaining . . . This series will have you reading (and laughing) well after most people in your household are sound asleep.”
BookPage, Top Pick

“Along with a mystery that boils over into an international incident, Cotterill gives readers a wonderful re-creation of the 1980 Moscow Olympic Village and the preparations for the Games themselves.”
—Booklist, Starred Review

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

“Cotterill excels in the portrayal of potentially serious and momentous topics with lighthearted humor, imbuing his characters with grace and empathy.”
BookPage, Top Pick in Mystery

“Stunning . . . This series offers unfailingly satisfying reading . . . bursting with caustic wit and adventurous spirit.”
Booklist, Starred Review

“Crackles with humor and overflows with eccentric characters. Droll chapter titles add an extra soupcon of mirth.”
Kirkus Reviews
