Killed at the Whim of a Hat : Jimm Juree was a crime reporter for the Chiang Mai Daily Mail with a somewhat eccentric family - a mother who might be drifting mentally; a grandfather - a retired cop - who rarely talks; a younger brother obsessed with body-building, and a transgendered, former beauty pageant queen, former older brother. When Jimm is forced to follow her family to a rural village on the coast of Southern Thailand, sheâs convinced her career - maybe her life - is over. So when a van containing the skeletal remains of two hippies, one of them wearing a hat, is inexplicably unearthed in a local farmerâs field, Jimm is thrilled. Shortly thereafter an abbot at a local Buddhist temple is viciously murdered, with the templeâs monk and nun the only suspects. Suddenly Jimmâs new life becomes somewhat more promising - and a lot more deadly. And if Jimm is to make the most of this opportunity, and unravel the mysteries that underlie these inexplicable events, it will take luck, perseverance, and the help of her entire family.
