Abstract:

What do you do when you find a severed head on the beach? With her former cop grandfather as back up, and the rest of their dysfunctional family in tow, crime reporter Jimm Juree sets out to discover how the poor fellow got there. They uncover gruesome tales of piracy and slavery, violence and murder. Are the authorities uninterested because they're involved, or because the victims aren't Thai? Whatever the reason, Jimm and her team are going it alone. Airport hostages and hand grenades, monkeys and naked policemen - once more the sublime and the ridiculous clash in the Gulf of Thailand.
