Book Summary

The Ethical Chiang Mai Detective Agency unravels the mystery surrounding the disappearance of wealthy travellers in Thailand.

As a nurse ethnicist, Ladarat Patalung works to save the lives of her patients, and to make sure the ones she can't save have at least the dignity of a "good death."

But when wealthy foreign travelers start to go missing all across Thailand, Detective Wiriya Mookjai fears that a killer is at large, and turns to Ladarat for help.

The travelers have nothing in common, except for brief stays at a mysterious resort, known as the Magic Grove Hotel.

"Starred Review. Perfect for those who enjoy Colin Cotterill and Alexander McCall Smith." - Booklist

"Casarett's second Chang Mai Detective Agency novel has oodles of old-fashioned charm, with an easy pace, colorful characters, and a lively curiosity for the interesting details of everyday life. Piquantly titled chapters add a soupcon of comic zest." - Kirkus
