Shamini Flint is a Cambridge graduate and was a lawyer with the UK firm Linklaters for ten years, travelling extensively in Asia during that period, before giving up her practice to concentrate on writing. She is the author of several 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
