Colin Cotterill was born and raised in London but soon jetted off on a world tour that never ended. He has taught in Australia, the USA and Japan. After working with an NGO and child protection services in Southeast Asia, Colin settled in southern Thailand where he now writes full-time. The Merry Misogynist is Dr Siri's sixth investigation. Colin won the 2009 CWA Dagger in the Library for the Dr Siri series of novels.
'Cotterill's novels have richer plots than Alexander McCall Smith's
African detective stories, but the same comic charm' Sunday Times.

'...an odd sort of joy to read ... his love of south-east Asia is everywhere evident, lending his writing an elegance and poignancy - beautiful exotic imagery, a pleasing wry patter to his characters' speech. The series has been commended for its humanity and intrigue and the latest instalment won't disappoint' City AM. * City AM *
'Witty dialogue and engaging characters, especially the irrepressible Siri, who becomes more lovable with each appearance. The combination of humour, social commentary and a clever mystery make this one of the most enjoyable books I've read all year' Sunday Telegraph. * Sunday Telegraph *
