Publisher's Summary

Inspector Singh is home - and how he wishes he wasn't. His wife nags him at breakfast and his superiors are whiling away their time by giving him his usual 'you're a disgrace to the force' lecture. Fortunately for Singh, there is no rest for the wicked when he is called out to the murder of a senior partner at an international law firm, clubbed to death at his desk. Unfortunately for Singh, there is no shortage of suspects - from the victim's fellow partners to his wife and ex-wife - or motives, as many of the lawyers have secrets they would kill to protect.
And very soon Singh finds himself heading up an investigation that rips apart the fabric of Singapore society and exposes the rotten core beneath. Perhaps coming home wasn't such a good idea, after all...?

Entertaining

Inspector Singh may not have proved the most popular of detective characters, but as an overweight Sikh surviving in the Singapore police he is one of the more unusual. I have heard all three recordings now, with the engaging Jonathan Keeble juggling Sikh, Malaysian, English and other accents with aplomb. There are two other books in the series which have not yet been recorded, and I hope they will make it on to audible. Light, diverting, with a flavour of the country - in this case Singapore, though the others offer Bali and Malaysia.

Singh in trouble misses dinner with Mrs Singh

Good story kept me guessing till the end. Singh is an amusing character that I can mentally make out.
