About the Series: Aung and Yamin Mysteries
What do a mischievous, spirit-imbued puppet and wizened puppet singer have in common? In this case, it’s solving mysteries.

In 19th Century Burma, foreigners are slowly sinking their teeth into the Burmese kingdom while living spirits still walk the land. Where they meet, ancient belief systems clash. So, too, do those who adhere to tradition and those who have forgotten powers far older than Buddha. In this mysterious land, wandering puppet troupes and their magic marionettes are the only source of news and social commentary. It makes the troupes important. It makes them dangerous to the king. It makes their lives risky enough without assuming the task of investigating murder and mayhem along their way.

Welcome to the perilous world of Aung Aung the puppet singer and his accomplice, the not so faithful, and occasionally not so helpful, puppet, Yamin.
