The Missing Guests of the Magic Grove Hotel

The Missing Guests of the Magic Grove Hotel

A fascinating mystery featuring Ladarat Patalung, the first and only nurse detective in Thailand.

The travelers have nothing in common, except for brief stays at a mysterious resort, known as the Magic Grove Hotel…
