Description

Rosie "Aunty" Lee-feisty widow, amateur sleuth and proprietor of Singapore's best-loved home cooking restaurant-is back in another delectable, witty mystery set in Singapore. Slightly hobbled by a twisted ankle, crime-solving restaurateur Aunty Lee begrudgingly agrees to take a rest from running her famous cafe, Aunty Lee's Delights, and turns over operations to her friend and new business partner Cherril. The cafe serves as a meeting place for an animal rescue society that Cherril once supported. They were forced to dissolve three years earlier after a British expat killed the puppy she'd adopted, sparking a firestorm of scandal. The expat, Allison Fitzgerald, left Singapore in disgrace, but has returned with an ax to grind (and a lawsuit). At the cafe one afternoon, Cherril receives word that Allison has been found dead in her hotel-and foul play is suspected. When a veterinarian, who was also involved in the scandal, is found dead, suspicion soon falls on the animal activists. What started with an internet witch hunt has ended in murder-and in a tightly knit, law-and-order society like Singapore, everyone is on edge.
Before anyone else gets hurt-and to save her business-Aunty Lee must get to the bottom of what really happened three years earlier, and figure out who is to be trusted in this tangled web of scandal and lies.
