This is the 7th book in the Dr. Siri series, and it is one of the best. Dr. Siri, the 70+ year old coroner of Laos, is involved with policeman Phosy investigating a series of murders of three women killed with a stab through the heart with a fencing sword and a "Z" carved in the thigh. As the case is about to go to court, Dr. Siri goes to Cambodia on a diplomatic mission. Interspersed in the story are sections where the doctor is describing imprisonment.
