Inspector Singh Investigates: A Most Peculiar Malaysian Murder
By Shamini Flint
Minotaur Books, 2010

When Alan Lee, a big timber executive in Malaysia, is killed, police arrest his ex-wife, Chelsea Liew, as their prime — and only — suspect.

With the former Singaporean model on death row, the Singaporean authorities send inspector Singh to Kuala Lumpur to solve the murder. But like his Malay counterparts, Singh comes to the same conclusions after looking into the case. Alan was shot at point-blank range and Chelsea had the biggest motivation to pull the trigger, as the two were in a bitter custody battle over their three children.

To figure out the mystery, Singh must work with the Malaysian police, who are just as happy to work with him as he is with them — that is to say, not at all.

As the inspector digs deeper, more skeletons come out of Alan’s closet and it appears that Chelsea may not be the only one to have a reason to want to kill him.
