Books Info:

Marina Bay Sins free pdf Throughout his career, Singapore's bestselling author Neil Humphreys has successfully mixed biting wit with pitch-black satire to highlight the hypocrisy that lies beneath Asia's sanitised, swinging city. In both fiction and non-fiction, he has shone a light into Singapore's darkest corners to create riveting stories that both captivate the reader and provoke the conscience. Now, in his new novel Marina Bay Sins, he has taken a parang to some of Asia's most sacred cows. Detective Inspector Stanley Low is having a really bad day. His bipolar condition is already ruining another session with his psychiatrist when a sadistic sex murder-suicide at Singapore's most prestigious hotel plunges him back into a sordid underworld he was desperate to leave behind. As the case spirals out of control, Inspector Low encounters self-help celebrity couple Yue Liang and Jimmy Chew. She's a desperate singer willing to do whatever it takes to break the US market. He's a motivational speaker embroiled in a financial crisis. Neither of them can get their story straight. Meanwhile, a South African CEO cannot control his addiction to Asian women, an elusive Indonesian businessman plays pimp for exiled military generals, a government minister is determined to protect foreign 'talent' and an imprisoned loan shark pushes Low to the brink of a nervous breakdown. Fuelled by his uncontrollable mania, Inspector Low goes undercover once more and returns to a world that the Asian metropolis refuses to acknowledge: a world of gambling addiction, crime syndicates, international money launderers, immoral celebrities and corrupt politicians, all living in Asia's cleanest city.
