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. 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.

About the Author:

SHAMINI FLINT is a Cambridge graduate and former lawyer. In addition to the Inspector Singh series, she is the author of several highly regarded children’s books.

From Booklist:

Flint’s adult debut is the first investigation by Inspector Singh of Singapore, and it’s a charming and solid mystery with an enticing international atmosphere. Notoriously difficult Inspector Singh is sent to Malaysia when a Singaporean citizen, former model Chelsea Leiw, is accused of her husband’s murder. Since his superiors are glad to be rid of him, Singh is pretty much on his own in Malaysia, a country he considers to be dirty, foreign, and altogether too hot—it’s impossible for him to keep his trademark white sneakers spotless, something that is never a problem in his ultraclean and rule-bound home country. Singh is so determined to find the real killer (and thereby free Chelsea, Singh’s teenage crush) that after he’s officially off the investigation, he stays on to pursue his own inquiries. Flint effectively builds the plot around contemporary political issues—the logging industry and the efforts of environmentalists to regulate it—but the real appeal of her novel is Singh himself, whose timeless, idiosyncratic personality will draw all types of mystery readers. Try suggesting this to fans of H. R. F. Keating’s Inspector Ghote novels. --Jessica Moyer
