1936 in the Crown Colony of Singapore, and the British abdication crisis and rising Japanese threat seem very far away. When the Irish nanny looking after Acting Governor Palin's daughter dies suddenly - and in mysterious circumstances - mission school-educated local girl SuLin - an aspiring journalist trying to escape an arranged marriage - is invited to take her place. But then another murder at the residence occurs and it seems very likely that a killer is stalking the corridors of Government House. It now takes all SuLin's traditional skills and intelligence to help British-born Chief Inspector Thomas LeFroy solve the murders - and escape with her own life.

In this neat and tidy mystery murder(s) a young SuLin gets involved in a well known family's murder in 1936 Singapore. The story is cast with Brits, locals, police force and servants. The nanny dies after falling/pushed from a window and wife later from what? SuLin takes on the nanny role to get up close and personal with the internal relationships and goings on. Not too serious but nevertheless quite engaging.
