Overview
Inspector Singh is in Cambodia - wishing he wasn't. He's been sent as an observer to the international war crimes tribunal in Phnom Penh, the latest effort by his superiors to ensure that he is anywhere except in Singapore.
But for the first time the fat Sikh inspector is on the verge of losing his appetite when a key member of the tribunal is murdered in cold blood. The authorities are determined to write off the incident as a random act of violence, but Singh thinks otherwise. It isn't long before he finds himself caught up in one of the most terrible murder investigations he's witnessed - the roots of which lie in the dark depths of the Cambodian killing fields. . .

When Inspector Singh, the star of the Singapore police’s murder squad, is sent to Cambodia to observe an ex–Khmer Rouge leader’s trial for crimes against humanity, he expects little but boredom. But in the Sikh detective’s fourth outing (after The Singapore School of Villainy), Singh finds himself helping the taciturn Colonel Menhay solve the murder of a key witness for the prosecution. The shrewd Singh manages to winnow down the long list of suspects, but not in time to prevent another killing. And in a country where “tourist highlights include torture chambers and mass graves,” neither the investigation nor the trial can provide true closure for all who have lost their families. Alongside this sobering message, however, the book offers charming observations on life in Cambodia, with its many contradictions—a great read for an armchair traveler who likes a chewy mystery. (Aug.)
