Synopsis:

Throughout his career, Singapore’s bestselling author Neil Humphreys has successfully mixed biting wit with pitch-black satire to highlight the hypocrisy that lies beneath Asia’s sanitized, swinging city. In both fiction and non-fiction, he has shone a light into Singapore’s darkest corners to create riveting stories that both captivate the reader and provoke the conscience. Now, in his new novel Marina Bay Sins, he has taken a parang to some of Asia’s most sacred cows.

Detective Inspector Stanley Low is having a really bad day. His bipolar condition is already ruining another therapy session when a sadistic sex murder-suicide at Singapore’s most prestigious hotel plunges him back into a sordid underworld he was desperate to leave behind.

He has no choice. Dead bodies at Marina Bay Sands are bad for business. They ask questions of a sanitized society no one is keen to answer. As the case spirals out of control, Inspector Low encounters a self-help celebrity couple, an expat CEO addicted to Asian women and an elusive foreign businessman playing pimp for exiled generals… all thriving in Asia’s cleanest city. None of them can get their story straight.

As Inspector Low gets closer to the unpalatable truth, the search for the murderer races to a gripping, horrifying finish. An intelligent, thought-provoking novel, Marina Bay Sins is Humphreys at his satirical best.
