Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Inspector Singh: a fat, slightly bumbling, but truly lovable detective sure to charm readers of The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency
 
Inspector Singh is in a bad mood. Hes 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 didnt do it, he thinks she didnt 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 Chelseas 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. Theres just one problem—the Malaysian police refuse to play ball.

Review:

"Flint's promising first in a new series introduces portly Inspector Singh of the Singapore police. Singh's bosses send him to Kuala Lumpur to see that former model Chelsea Liew, a Singaporean accused of murdering her abusive Malaysian husband, timber tycoon Alan Lee, gets justice rather than summary execution. Singh has few leads, and an annoyingly fit, young, and handsome Sergeant Shukor of the Malaysian police hounds his steps, ostensibly to help--but really to spy on him. It is, on the face of it, an open and shut case. Chelsea had been suing for divorce and the custody of her children when Alan's lawyer announced that his client had converted to Islam and had declared his minor sons Muslim as well so that only the religious courts had jurisdiction over the custody hearing. At this point Chelsea threatened to kill Alan, who was found fatally shot soon after. Flint (Three Stars and other children's books) keeps the reader hooked right up to the unexpected resolution. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
