Get teased on a Tuesday!

I am Dr Siri Paibun, seventythree-year-old still going strong. I am national coroner of Laos. I am out of town attending a boring conference! On my way back, I am kidnapped by seven females from Hmong village. As most know, I share my body with the thousand-year-old shaman named Yeh Ming. The headman of Hmong village wants me to exorcise his 14-year-old daughter who is possessed by a demon.

Meanwhile, my fiancee and my assisstant wait for me in Laos and are almost killed by a booby trapped corpse.

I am trapped between reality and spirits. What should I do?

"Everyone in the house had plugs of folded mint leaves protruding from their nostrils. The body of the old lady continued to hang from the main pillar."

Well between the Where are YOu and the Teaser you definitely have me intrigued. I'll be watching for your review.

Very intriguing. Did he get kidnapped because he share his body or is that just a bonus?

Beth F said...

Super teasers! I'm guessing the mint helps with the smell.

jlshall said...

Oh dear, my first reaction to this teaser was "yuck!" - but when you get past those mint leaves, it does sound like an intriguing read.

Jo-Jo said...

I'm assuming that if you are going to keep old ladies hanging from the ceiling you would need the mint leaves to help you deal with the smell! lol
Great teaser! Now why would they have the lady hanging in the first place...I am definitely teased!
