Product description

Review

"In his raw power to bring the street-level flavor of contemporary Asian cities to life, Needham is Michael Connelly with steamed rice." --The Bangkok Post

"Asia's most stylish and atmospheric writer of crime fiction." --The Straits Times (Singapore)

"Jake Needham...has a knack for bringing intricate plots to life. His stories blur the line between fact and fiction and have a 'ripped from the headlines' feel. The level of detail astounds, giving the story an authenticity that could only come from someone who has intimate familiarity with such things. Buckle up and enjoy the ride." --CNNgo.com

"Although it might seem unlikely that government agencies would engage in such brazen corruption in real life, the truth is they already have... Mr. Needham seems to know rather more than one ought about these things." --The Wall Street Journal Asia

"Obtaining books from regional publishers has its difficulties, but in the case of THE AMBASSADOR'S WIFE, it will be well worth the effort. This is an absorbing, believable portrayal of a veteran homicide cop in Singapore." --The Japan Times
