Grandad, There's a Head on the Beach : A Jimm Juree Novel Paperback
What do you do when you find a severed head on the beach?
With her former cop grandfather as back up, crime reporter Jimm Juree sets out to discover how the poor fellow got there.
On their journey they uncover gruesome tales of piracy, slavery, violence and murder, yet the authorities show no interest at all.
Is it 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.

Review by devenish
Colin Cotterill usually manages combine crime and comedy successfully in both of his series of books. Certainly his Dr. Siri series are better overall,but his first Jimm Juree came over well too.This second one starts well with Jimm finding the head of the title,and investigating how and why it got there. As the book progresses the story leaves comedy and crime and moves into the area of farce. By the end I had largely lost interest and merely hoped for a quick release. A pity as you can usually count on Cotterill for a great story.
