Laos, 1979: Dr. Siri Paiboun, the twice-retired ex-National Coroner of Laos, receives an unmarked package in the mail. Inside is a hand-woven pha sin, a corlorful traditioinal skirt worn by women in certain Lao tribes. A lovely present, but who sent it to him, and why? And, more importantly, why is there a severed human finger stitched into the sin's lining? In his effort to decifer the secret message, Siri and his entourage set off on a deadly scavanger hunt through war-torn northern Laos.
