When a scandal over illegal organ donation makes news, she already has a list of suspects. There's no time to snoop, though--Aunty Lee's Delights is catering a brunch for local socialites Henry and Mabel Sung. Rumor has it that the Sungs' fortune is in trouble, and Aunty Lee wonders if the gossip is true. But soon after arriving at the Sungs', her curiosity turns to suspicion. Why is the guesthouse in the garden locked up--and what's inside? Where is the missing guest of honor? Then Mabel Sung and her son, Leonard, are found dead. The authorities blame it on Aunty Lee's special stewed chicken with buah keluak, a local black nut that can be poisonous if cooked improperly. She's certain the deaths are murder--and that they're somehow linked to the organ donor scandal. To save her business and her reputation, she's got to prove it--and unmask a dangerous killer.

Aunty Lee is back in this fun cozy mystery series set in Singapore. This is the second novel of the series and we find out more about Aunty Lee and the characters that come to her cafe, Aunty Lee's Delights.

These books are a fun way to learn more about Singaporean culture and food.

This is the 2nd volume in this wonderful cozy mysteries series set in Singapore. I especially enjoy this series as it is filled with so much culture history and tradition so I've learned a great deal. I am hopeful a 3rd volume will be coming out soon and I highly recommend the series!
