I don't think I'll be breaking any rules if I mention that Shamini will be coming to SheKilda in October - so I was keen to fix a HUGE gap in my reading and catchup with her books.  There are 3 out, with a 4th due very soon.  And I must admit I found this absolutely charming.  Certainly a little on the lighter side with a wonderful touch of humour and a tremendous new entrant in the slightly scruffy, unusual central protaganist stakes - if the first book is any indication this is going to be a very enjoyable series.  More in detail soonish.

From the Blurb:

Inspector Singh is in a bad mood.  He's been sent from his home in Singapore to Kuala Lumpur to solve a murder that has him stumped.  Chelsea Liew - the famous Singaporean model - is on death row for the murder of her ex-husband.  She swears she didn't do it, he thinks she didn't do it, but no matter how hard he tries to get to the bottom of things, he still arrives back where he started - that Chelsea's husband was shot at point blank range and that Chelsea had the best motive to pull the trigger:  he was taking her kids away from her.

Opening Lines:

The accused, Chelsea Liew, was in court.  She sat on a wooden bench in a wooden box, handcuffed to a police woman.

Inspector Singh is in a bad mood. He's been sent from his home in Singapore to Kuala Lumpur to solve a murder that has him stumped. Chelsea Liew - the famous Singaporean model - is on death row for the murder of her ex-husband. She swears she didn't do it, he thinks she didn't do it, but no matter how hard he tries to get to the bottom of things, he still arrives back at the same place - that Chelsea's husband was shot at point blank range, and that Chelsea had the best motivation to pull the trigger: he was taking her kids away from her.

Now Inspector Singh must pull out all the stops to crack a crime that could potentially free a beautiful and innocent woman and reunite a mother with her children. There's just one problem - the Malaysian police refuse to play ball...
