Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Crimes are few and far between in the city-state of Singapore and the crimes that do occur are usually solved quickly and efficiently. But when there's a crime that has the police baffled, it's Inspector Zhang that they turn to. He is one of the best detectives on the force. He is also a fan of detective fiction, and he loves nothing more than putting his observational skills to the test. From locked-room mysteries to disappearing drugs and murders disguised as suicide, Inspector Zhang is able to draw on his experience as a detective along with tricks he has learned from the likes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie. Assisted by the inexperienced Seargeant Lee, Inspector Zhang solves brain-teasing mysteries in the style of Sherlock Holmes and Poirot with a modern twist. See if you can solve the crimes before the inspector - the clues are there!
