The Motion Picture Teller

Best known for his Dr. Siri Paiboun mystery series, Colin Cotterill has written a mystery where not a drop of blood is spilled. Thai postman, Supot and his video-store-owning friend Ali buy a battered VHS tape for a song in a box of junk and then realize that it is the only copy of a film destined to become a classic of Thai cinema. Why, the two wonder, was it never released. Supot watches it so many times he memorizes it, which turns out to be a blessing in disguise when, weeks later, this only copy is stolen. Supot's search for Bankok 2010's beautiful heroine takes him into the heart of a mystery cult and a journey of self-discovery. A lark of a book for film and mystery lover's alike.
