Praise for Curse of the Pogo Stick

“The adventure among the Hmong reveals Cotterill’s real strength . . . The reason his series continues to be worth reading, is the author’s deep understanding of these people and their beautiful, troubled land . . . Like Dr. Siri, Colin Cotterill has a touch of magic about him.”
The Boston Globe

“Cotterill’s approach in Curse of the Pogo Stick—so measured and offhand—actually achieves a remarkable feat: It cuts through all the never-again media saturation that genocidal regimes often generate, and it makes us take notice once more. We wind up caring about Cotterill’s characters, because they’re mostly either decent or at least understandably flawed and therefore human. By avoiding the nastiness and nihilism of noir, they reach a sympathetic, soulful reality writers rarely pull off.”
Paste Magazine

“Cotterill’s ironic pen [is] as sharp as ever.”
Kirkus Reviews

“One of my favorite reluctant ‘detectives’ . . . Another delightful and intelligent read . . . Brilliant.”
—Crimespree Magazine
