Aunty Lee's Delights
2 journalers for this copy...
After losing her husband, Rosie Lee could easily have become one of Singapore's "tai tai," an idle rich lady devoted to mah-jongg and luxury shopping. Instead she threw herself into building a culinary empire from her restaurant, Aunty Lee's Delights, where spicy Singaporean home cooking is graciously served to locals and tourists alike. But when a body is found in one of Singapore's beautiful tourist havens, and when one of her wealthy guests fails to show at a dinner party, Aunty Lee knows that the two are likely connected.
The murder and disappearance throws together Aunty Lee's henpecked stepson Mark, his social-climbing wife Selina, a gay couple whose love is still illegal in Singapore, and an elderly Australian tourist couple whose visit-billed at first as a pleasure cruise-may mask a deeper purpose. Investigating the murder is rookie Police Commissioner Raja, who quickly discovers that the savvy and well-connected Aunty Lee can track down clues even better than local law enforcement.

This is a fun, spicy mystery combining food lore and Auntie Lee’s cooking inspired philosophies. The story is told from multiple points of view which is especially entertaining because there’s an international multicultural cast: Singaporean residents who are ethnic Chinese, Indian, Malay, Eurasian, and Filipino, and tourists from America and Australia. Plenty of twists and turns along the way. Overall an entertaining read.
