Inspector Singh Investigates : A Calamitous Chinese Killing
Summary from www.goodreads.com
Singh's expertise is required in China in his sixth adventure, as he
battles political intrigue to get to the bottom of a very murky and
complex crime Inspector Singh is on a mission to China, against
his better judgment. The son of a bigwig at the Singapore Embassy has
been bludgeoned to death in a back alley in Beijing. The Chinese
security insist that he was the victim of a robbery gone wrong, but the
young man's mother demands that Singapore's finest (in his own opinion)
rides to the rescue. But solving a murder in a country that practices
socialism "with Chinese characteristics" is a dangerous business, and it
soon becomes apparent that getting to the bottom of this calamitous
killing will be his toughest case yet My Comments : Shamini Flint has done it again. Another thought provoking book fill with suspense.
blend in the story are issues on corruption, illegal organ harvesting,
poverty, materialism, environmental issues and crackdown on fulan
gong members. Did I miss out on any other issues? Qing's aunt had
certainly voiced out what I felt about Mao's policies.
it was not easy to begin reading this book. The story jump from one
character to another but as it goes, the story will come together.
only downside is that I am not happy with the closure on Professor Luo
issue. It feel just so unfair. I would have love it if it have a
perfect ending. but then with perfect ending, the story will no longer
have the realistic feel, right?
I wonder where will inspector
Chen send inspector singh to next? will Mrs singh learn how to make
szechuan food? will she be more involved in his investigation? For the moment am giving this book 4 stars out of 5.
