Jimm Juree is determined to make it in the man's world of Thai crime reporting, and she's succeeding, until her mother suddenly sells their house and moves the eccentric family to undeveloped South Thailand to run a resort. (Sissi, computer whiz and transsexual beauty queen stays behind.) Jimm is not happy, but family is family. Then she gets a tip on a newly discovered crime, and rushes off to get the story, surprisingly making friends with a few of the local policemen, who are glad to have something happen for a change. Jimm is well-placed when a second crime occurs, and is eager to help solve it. In the process, she learns things about her Granddad Jah, her bodybuilding younger brother, and most of all her mother Mair. This is less gory and less harrowing than Cotterill's magnificent Dr. Siri books, and is set at a more contemporary period.
