Publisher's 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….

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.

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.

Great Story - Poor Voice Characterization

I’m enjoying Shamini Flint’s first story in the Inspector Singh Investigates series; it’s good and engaging, with the eponymous central protagonist a classic gumshoe reminiscent of Peter Corris’s Cliff Hardy, Alexander McCall Smith’s Precious Ramotswe, and Vaseem Khan’s Inspector Chopra: a genre character in a genre that I love. What a shame that such an engaging story has been murdered—somewhat ironically— by Keeble’s narration. I really do not like to be discouraging but Jonathan should have left his attempts at accents well alone. If I were Flint, I’d be horrified at the bloodied and mangled mess the narrator left behind. The casting of Keeble was a mistake and shows in this time of the burgeoning popularity of audiobooks what an exacting task this is. The search was not as careful as it might have been; you can’t tell me that there would be no local Malaysian or Singaporean voice talent that could have been found and who would have paid the panoply of voices in this engaging tale due consideration and respect. That having been said, I want to hear the denouement of this whodunnit and will proceed, undaunted to listen.
