The first in the Inspector Singh series, this is perfect for anyone who likes their crime fiction quirky and set in more unusual destinations.
An epic love story set in 1930s and 1940s Malaysia, on the cusp of WW2 and with the Japanese about to invade. It follows a Chinese man who uses his shop house - The Harmony Silk Factory - as a front for his illegal businesses. Full of suspense and beautifully written.
