Inspector-Singh-One

The First Inspector Singh
A Book by Shamini Flint

$14.95

The portly, methodical Inspector Singh is a thorn in the side of his bosses on the Singapore police force, so they send him off to Malaysia to monitor the trial of Chelsea Liew, a Singaporean beauty queen accused of killing her abusive millionaire ex-husband.

The plot, revolving around the difference between secular and Islamic custody laws, is unexpectedly nuanced and surprising. But the keenest pleasures of this book center on Inspector Singh, and his attempts to see justice served while somehow maneuvering around his excessively zealous sergeant, keeping his white sneakers clean, and scoring the occasional tasty snack.

The novel is the first in Shamini Flint’s series of mysteries set in various Asian locales and featuring a Sikh detective.

Founder Maggie Topkis owned a mystery bookshop in NYC’s Greenwich Village for nearly 20 years, and F&M is a direct descendant of that store. She loves the press — and is thrilled to bring back into print many books that had wrongly been disappeared from bookshelves — but she misses making recommendations to readers. She’s proud to note that F&M has had four books shortlisted for the Edgar Award (the Oscars of the mystery-world), and is delighted to have more than 300 titles in print.
