Praise for Love Songs from a Shallow Grave
A New York Times Notable Crime Novel
"You get a real feeling for what Laos was like in the '70s. The humor is wonderful, too--very subtle, very British."
--New York Post
"This is the seventh and most sardonic of Mr. Cotterill's Dr. Siri series, and it is not easy to cope with the combination of misery and merry melancholy that he employs. His writing, as always, is skillful and smooth and his plot is artfully strung together. The book fascinates as it chills."
--The Washington Times
--The Seattle Times
"I love this elegantly written series, set in Laos with clever, septuagenarian coroner Dr. Siri. This one, the seventh, is the best, but all of them are terrific . . . A delightful mix of history and politics, and an excellent mystery."
--The Globe and Mail
--Sacramento News and Review "It's a rare treat to say that a book placed so far into a series is the best one. Authors more often than not run out of steam by the seventh book. Not Colin Cotterill."
--Oregon Live (The Oregonian) "Cotterill, a resident of Thailand, has a gift for creating memorably eccentric characters, while spinning a fascinating array of Southeast Asian history and folklore into his narratives."
"Cotterill's superb seventh mystery . . . has it all--a heroic protagonist, a challenging puzzle, and an exotic setting."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "In his seventh installment (after The Merry Misogynist) Cotterill vividly depicts a Southeast Asia still traumatized by the Vietnam War--the horrors perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge, the shocking poverty, the rampant corruption, and the steadfast spirit of the people, And Dr. Siri is a one-of-a-kind protagonist rivaled only by Eliot Pattison's Shan Tao Yung. Highly recommended for series fans and readers who enjoy international mysteries."
--Library Journal, Starred Review "Dr. Siri, his friends and colleagues are charming, and the puzzle is intriguing."
--The Free Lance-Star
