Singaporean policeman Inspector Singh finds himself embroiled in a complex murder enquiry when sent to Malaysia to protect the interests of Singapore citizen, Chelsea Liew. An ever growing list of suspects, motives and even victims complicate his investigation into this peculiar Malaysian murder and keep the reader guessing along with him until the last page.

It was both their strength and, at moments like these, when their judgement was clouded with sympathy, their weakness.
