What you need to know before your trail

When crime reporter Jimm Juree is forced to follow her family from Chiang Mai to a fishing village on the Gulf of Siam, she’s convinced her career is over. Her journalism will surely dwindle to reports on the annual monsoon-induced floods, for what crimes could possibly happen in such an out-of-the-way place?

A local palm oil plantation owner and his worker are excavating a well. They dig down six feet and hit metal. It turns out to be the roof of an old Volkswagen combi, which, once unearthed, is found to contain two skeletons – one of them wearing a hat.

A monk is murdered in Lang Suan, the nearest town. There is apparently no motive for the killing and no suspects are found. But there are odd connections between this killing and several others. Suddenly Jimm’s new life becomes somewhat more promising – and a great deal more dangerous.

Travel Guide

Travel to Thailand literary style

Chiang Mai to Land Suan

For a crime reporter, well for anyone really, suddenly being relocated from Chiang Mai to deepest, darkest Southern Thailand is not going to be easy. To make it worse, she has no choice and so finds herself in a tourist resort of all place, having to start over.

It’s not the easiest of moves for anyone. When you have a family as diverse and eccentric as Jimm’s, it’s going to be comical too.One family member stays behind in Chiang Mai and they seem to be the only sane one.

Welcome to Lang Suan  – the nearest town to where they all live and only sign of civilisation. The inhabitants of this place, especially the police make up the comedy characters.
