Four short stories featuring detective Inspector Zhang from Singapore. They are all locked room mysteries to test the detective's deductive powers to the full - Inspector Zhang and the Perfect Alibi, Inspector Zhang and the Falling Woman, Inspector Zhang and the Dead Thai Gangster, and Inspector Zhang and the Disappearing Drugs.
Assisted by the inexperienced Sergeant Lee, the inspector solves brain-teasing mysteries in the style of Sherlock Holmes and Poirot but with a modern twist. See if you can solve the crimes before the inspector - the clues are there!
