Siao char bor! Mm tzai si! Crazy girl! Want to die, is it?
The millennium is ending and Singapore, now a glittering economic powerhouse, is loosening up and partying. Pagers connect everyone and Singapore’s love affair with big chain coffee has just begun. In Holland Village, avid mystery reader Mei is raising the shutters on the Can-Do bookshop.
Juggling her job, her family, her friends and worries about her future is keeping her busy but when a customer is murdered, Mei needs to know why. Taking lessons from her favourite detectives, the always inquisitive — some would say kaypoh — Mei navigates the darker side of Singapore to find out what really led to the death of Sally Song.
