A new story with Detective Inspector Zhang, Singhapora Polis, a very well-educated, polite gentleman of the old-fashioned kind. And he resolves his crimes - always to do with a closed room - the way that clearly reminds me of Monsieur Poirot - whom he admits to adore ...
Effective, with his female sidekick Sergeant Lee, he strikes when the culprit seemsto be yet on the sure side.
And he makes it with the help of 'ze small grey zells', just as Mons. Poirot used to say.
This time we are very near to the perfect crime.
A murder, a victim and a suspect who seems to have a perfect alibi. Because there was company when the burglarer (?) entered and did the awfull deed! But the evidence points at one person only...
A mystery worth of those little grey cells our good Inspector Zhang is so proud of. And - as always - he finds his way to nail the culprit.
