The 2nd in the Laotian series starring national coroner, Dr Siri Paiboun is back with his trusty assistants Dtui and Geung. A couple of women are found slashed and bitten to death. All evidence appear to indicate that they'd been killed by a bear. In addition, a wooden box with the royal seal was found in a closed office of a government building and is emanating a strong and malevolent vibe which Dr Siri suspects may have caused a government civil servant to throw himself out the window, landing on a passing cyclist, killing the 2 of them. He's also called out to identify 2 crisp bodies of pilots who were burned.

While trying to solve the mysteries surrounding the victims, Dr Siri continues to be stalked by enemies of Yeh Ming, his neighbor Ms Vong, and watched over by Saloop, a mangy dog.

The spirits continue to help and maybe sometime hinder his work, but his sense of humor continues to prevail, even when he's .... arrested.
