Singh is a detective from Singapore. Sent to Malaysia to ensure that a Singaporean subject, Chelsea receives a fair investigation and trial after being accused of murdering her abusive husband.
Something doesn’t ring true and Singh sets upon the trail to discover if Chelsea is in fact innocent. Gradually the story unfolds that Chelsea has been in an abusive relationship, her deceased often having affairs and had recently told the divorce courts that he had converted religions and that provides extra complications to the case.
This was an unusual book, selected as potential a Cozy Mystery, this was anything but. The storyline was complex and just as you thought perhaps you had established who done it, there was a change in the storyline.
A great book, and now onto book two in the series.
