About this title

Synopsis:

“THE AMBASSADOR’S WIFE is another terrific book from a terrific writer. In the genre of crime fiction set in Asia, Jake Needham is in a class of his own.” —The Bangkok Post

The first body is in Singapore, on a bed in an empty suite in the Marriott Hotel. The second is in Bangkok, in a seedy apartment close to the American embassy. Both women. Both Americans. Both beaten viciously, shot in the head, stripped naked, and lewdly displayed.

The FBI says it’s terrorism, but the whispers on the street tell a different story. They say a serial killer is stalking American women across Asia.

Inspector Samuel Tay of Singapore CID is something of a reluctant policeman. He’s a little overweight, a little lonely, a little cranky, and he smokes way too much. Thinking back, he can’t even remember why he became a detective in the first place. He thinks a lot about quitting, but he hasn’t. Because the thing is, he’s very, very good at what he does.

When the bodies of American women start turning up, CID gives the case to Tay. It’s high profile, and he’s the best they have. Then why is it, Tay soon begins to wonder, that nobody seems to want him to find the women’s killer? Not the FBI, not the American ambassador, not even his bosses at CID.

When international politics takes over a murder case, the truth becomes the next victim.

About the Author:

JAKE NEEDHAM is an American screen and television writer who began writing crime novels when he realized he didn't really like movies and television very much.

Mr. Needham has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand for over twenty-five years. He is a lawyer by education and has held a number of significant positions in both the public and private sectors where he took part in a lengthy list of international operations he has absolutely no intention of telling you about. He, his wife, and their two sons now divide their time between homes in Thailand and the United States.
