Inspectior Singh Investigates: A Most Peculiar Malaysian Murder - Book 3 2010

Pat me on the back. Am pretty good at keeping my Resolution 2010 No 2. Am done with Inspector Singh Investigates: A Most Perculiar Malaysian Murder, written by Shamini Flint.

Written in simple english, bearing simple plot. Easy to digest. I considerer this one is a relaxing read but it lacks the urge for you to read more and more and more of it. Unlike when I read Hijab Sang Pencinta the other day.

The story is about a murder of a businessman, in which the ex wife was the prime suspect. They were in custody battle over their children following a bitter divorce. But as we go along, everybody had motive to kill that man, his brothers, his ex-wife's lover and even his son! This book also provides you mockery of what the real life is in Malaysia. The laidback of authorities, how people convert to moslem to win custody of underage children from their non-moslem ex-es, how bad Malaysian drivers are (me not!)

Singh, a Singaporean came about in this book because the suspect was a Singaporean. Together he teamed up with Malaysian police to crack the murder. Although he is the main character, it was not him who solved the case!

Albeit the urge to flip further, I still look forward to reading the sequel to this, Inspector Singh Investigates: A Bali Conspiracy Most Foul. Image taken from
