|General Note:|| Sequel to: Aunty Lee's deadly specials.
"P.S. Insights, interviews & more ..."--Cover.
|Summary, etc.:|| "Slightly hobbled by a twisted ankle, crime-solving restaurateur Aunty Lee begrudgingly agrees to take a rest from running her famous café, Aunty Lee's Delights, and turns over operations to her friend and new business partner Cherril. The café serves as a meeting place for an animal rescue society that Cherril once supported. They were forced to dissolve three years earlier after a British expat killed the puppy she'd adopted, sparking a firestorm of scandal. The expat, Allison Fitzgerald, left Singapore in disgrace, but has returned with an ax to grind (and a lawsuit). At the café one afternoon, Cherril receives word that Allison has been found dead in her hotel-- and foul play is suspected. When a veterinarian, who was also involved in the scandal, is found dead, suspicion soon falls on the animal activists. What started with an internet witch hunt has ended in murder-- and in a tightly knit, law-and-order society like Singapore, everyone is on edge. Before anyone else gets hurt-- and to save her business-- Aunty Lee must get to the bottom of what really happened three years earlier, and figure out who is to be trusted in this tangled web of scandal and lies"--Page 4 of cover.

The third book in the Singaporean mystery series finds Rosie "Aunty" Lee only slightly sidelined from running her cafe due to a twisted ankle. Keeping off her feet gives her more time to listen to the woes of a trio of former animal-shelter volunteers being sued by a mad Englishwoman whose husband left her after she euthanized their dog. Then the woman is murdered in her hotel room, and the three friends are suspects. Chatty Aunty Lee uses her friendship with Inspector Salim Mawar of the Neighborhood Police Hub to learn more about the case. Yu, an acclaimed playwright, layers details of foods, festivals, and family obligation in a warm, international cozy. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
