Anarchy and Old DogsAudiobook CD - 2011
An elderly man has been run down by a logging truck on the street in Vientiane just opposite the post office. His body is delivered to the morgue of seventy-three year old Dr. Siri Paiboun, the official and only coroner of Laos. Before he can identify the corpse, he must decipher a letter in the man's pocket--it is written in invisible ink and in code. He was a blind retired dentist, his widow explains, and the enigmatic letters and numbers describe chess moves, but they are unlike any chess symbols Siri has previously encountered. With the help of friends, Siri must solve the mystery and foil a plot to overthrow the government of Laos.
