Colin Cotterill’s whimsical mystery set in southern Thailand is the first in a new series featuring the “almost award-winning” female crime reporter, Jimm Juree.  Jimm’s eccentric mother Mair  has suddenly decided to buy a run down beach resort and has moved her incredibly dysfunctunal family, including her father, a retired police detective, to the Gulf Bay Lovely Resort on the Gulf of Thailand.  Jimm’s only escape from this boring rural life style is the discovery of a buried 1970′s era VW van with two hippie passengers inside, followed shortly by the stabbing death of an elderly revered monk in the local monastery. Can she solve both these murders and actually get her reporting job back?
