This is number two in the series and isn't as good as the first book in the series, though it’s not bad. It has good atmospherics that are pleasingly recognizable to anyone who’s been to Bali (though all my own visits were to the less-touristy Bali of 25 or 30 years ago. The main problem I had with the story is that big parts of its denouement are all too apparent long in advance. And the author does not make it clear until about page 85 that Bali is Hindu and not Muslim like the rest of Indonesia, and I would think that not knowing that fact would make it harder for readers not familiar with Bali to make sense of what is happening. And it would also have been helpful to somehow explain along the way about the India-style caste system in Bali, to help such readers to understand why various Balinese characters in the story behave as they do.

This is such a different flavor of mystery than my usual fare. Perhaps that’s why I enjoy it so much. The very foreignness of some of the words and concepts add a whole new level to the story.
