Summary

Inspector Singh is in a bad mood. He's been sent from his home in Singapore to Kuala Lumpur to solve a murder that has him stumped. Chelsea Liew - the famous Singaporean model - is on death row for the murder of her ex-husband. She swears she didn't do it, he thinks she didn't do it, but no matter how hard he tries to get to the bottom of things, he still arrives back at the same place - that Chelsea's husband was shot at point blank range, and that Chelsea had the best motivation to pull the trigger: he was taking her kids away from her. Now Inspector Singh must pull out all the stops to crack a crime that could potentially free a beautiful and innocent woman and reunite a mother with her children.

There's just one problem - the Malaysian police refuse to play ball….

Good concept...

and could be a very good TV series. But, not really sure of the novel somehow. I really liked the lead character 'Inspector Singh' but not really sure of the strength of the supporting cast.
Worth a listen as Jonathan Keeble is an AWESOME narrator. His narration of The Woodcutter.... superb.

Quality plot

The cover and title make this book look like a cozy murder mystery, but the plot is more sophisticated and compelling, dealing with environmental destruction and the cultural difficulties in Malaysia. Looking forward to more.

First in a set of Short Entertaining Crime Stories

Shamini Flint is definitely worth the read.

We get a loveable but regularly grumpy "cop" along with easily disliked killers from an author that leaves suspects, all over the place.

Quirky and quick its certainly not maudlin at all for a murder mystery.
