Inspector Singh Investigates : A Deadly Cambodian Crime Spree by Shamini Flint
This is the 4th book of Inspector Singh Series. This round the chubby and funny Inspector Singh landed in Cambodia. Got kicked by his "boss" to be an observer to the International War Crime Tribunal in Phnom Pehn.
When a key witness of the trial was murdered, Inspector Singh was roped in to help out with the investigation.
The authorities are determined to write off this murder as random acts of violence but knowing Inspector Singh, we know that he would certainly leave no stone unturned.
The investigation brings up a lot of heart ache and pain for everyone inclusive of Inspector Singh.
Before reading this book, I was really like "A frog under the coconut shell". I have no idea of Cambodia have such a violent past coz I never really bother to read up the country history and current event.
Frankly, I was horrified by the acts of violent against the so call "intellects" and their family members. The Khmer Rouge were so cruel against women and children. The scenes in this book were very vivid and descriptive.
I had a good laugh at page 137. Just too bad they didn't use the image of Ganesha statue and Inspector Singh side by side as the book cover. It would be very funny.
This is definitely a good read. Full of human and mysterious elements
