Curse of the Pogo StickBook - 2008
A Pogo Stick Brings a Curse Down upon a Hmong Village. In Vientiane, a booby-trapped corpse--intended for Dr Siri, the national coroner--has been delivered to the morgue. In his absence, only Nurse Dtui's intervention saves the lives of the morgue attendants, visiting doctors and Madame Daeng, Dr. Siri's fiancee. On his way back from a Communist party meeting in the north, Dr Siri is kidnapped by seven female Hmong villagers under the direction of the village elder so that he will, in the guise of Yeh Ming, the thousand year old shaman with whom he shares his body, exorcise the headman's daughter whose soul is possessed by a demon, and lift the curse of the pogo stick.
