At the opening of Six and a Half Deadly Sins the anonymous gift of a colorful pha sin delights a very bored Dr. Siri Paiboun—the twice retired ex-National Coroner of the People’s Republic of Laos—but not half so much as the strangely preserved human finger sewn into its hem or the fabric’s intense chemical smell. It’s been a while since Dr. Siri had a case and he’s not about to let this one get away.

And, more importantly, why is there a severed human finger stitched into the "sin"'s lining?
