Publisher's Summary

Inspector Singh is home - and how he wishes he wasn't. His wife nags him at breakfast and his superiors are whiling away their time by giving him his usual 'you're a disgrace to the force' lecture. Fortunately for Singh, there is no rest for the wicked when he is called out to the murder of a senior partner at an international law firm, clubbed to death at his desk. Unfortunately for Singh, there is no shortage of suspects - from the victim's fellow partners to his wife and ex-wife - or motives, as many of the lawyers have secrets they would kill to protect.

And very soon Singh finds himself heading up an investigation that rips apart the fabric of Singapore society and exposes the rotten core beneath. Perhaps coming home wasn't such a good idea, after all...?

    "Entertaining"

    Inspector Singh may not have proved the most popular of detective characters, but as an overweight Sikh surviving in the Singapore police he is one of the more unusual. I have heard all three recordings now, with the engaging Jonathan Keeble juggling Sikh, Malaysian, English and other accents with aplomb. There are two other books in the series which have not yet been recorded, and I hope they will make it on to audible. Light, diverting, with a flavour of the country - in this case Singapore, though the others offer Bali and Malaysia.

    I'm a stay at home adventurer. The stories take me to different places, I see sites, smells, tastes and feel what the author says in my mind

    "Singh in trouble misses dinner with Mrs Singh"

    Good story kept me guessing till the end. Singh is an amusing character that I can mentally make out.

    Story
    "A Singaporean Surprise"

    An unusual detective story. Inspector Singh is not the most likeable character. Astute, bullying, greedy and short tempered. However he does have an unerring ability to read people.

    Given his character's idiosyncrasies and Singapore being reflected as an authoritarian state, this novel surprisingly comes together.

    The cast of characters, largely devious lawyers and disgruntled wives, takes a backseat to the maverick that is Inspector Singh.

    Story
    "More than just "O.K. lah"!"
    Any additional comments?

    Maybe it is because I found that I could identify with many of the characters in this tale of modern day Singapore than made it appeal to me.
    A well written and very well narrated story made it a listening pleasure.
    I look forward to hearing more of the corpulent Inspector Singh!

    Story
    "great read by the narrator"
    What did you love best about The Singapore School of Villainy?

    I always enjoy material written about Singapore especially fiction and I have read others in thi sseries.


    What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

    I love this artists work, His command of the accents that are so diverse in the dialogue could not be faulted in this read.
