"Inspector Singh is Singapore's answer to Dirty Harry in a turban." Tarquin Hall, author of "The Case of the Missing Servant "

Homicide detective Inspector Singh has returned home to Singapore to rest his weary feet after time spent globe-trotting and crime-solving in Malaysia and Bali. But it's not long before he wishes he would be sent off to another foreign locale. With his wife nagging him and his boss lecturing him about his unconventional work habits, he's thrilled when a new case comes across his desk.

A senior partner at an international law firm has been murdered, and it's up to Singh to catch the killer and solve the case. There's no shortage of suspects, from the victim's fellow partners, many of whom are hiding secrets, as well as the dead man's wife and ex-wife. Soon, Inspector Singh is poised to expose the treachery that lies beneath Singapore's high society. Fast-paced, funny, and highly original, Shamini Flint's "The Singapore School of Villainy: Inspector Singh Investigates" is a fabulous mystery featuring everybody's favorite turbaned detective.
