Set in Thailand, this is a brilliantly original and page-turning first
novel of anthropologists, missionaries, demon possession, sexual taboos,
murder, and one obsessed young American reporter. When his girlfriend takes
a job in Thailand, Mischa goes along for the ride, planning only to enjoy
himself as much as possible. But when he hears about the suicide of a young
woman, Martiya van der Leun, in the Thai prison where she was serving a
life sentence for murder, what begins as mild curiosity becomes an
obsession. It is clear that Martiya was guilty, but what was it that led
her to kill?
