About the Book

Detective Inspector Stanley Low is having a really bad day. His bipolar condition is already ruining another therapy session 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.

He has no choice. Dead bodies at Marina Bay Sands are bad for business. They ask questions of a sanitized society no one is keen to answer. As the case spirals out of control, Inspector Low encounters a self-help celebrity couple, an expat CEO addicted
to Asian women and an elusive foreign businessman playing pimp for exiled military generals ... all thriving in Asia’s cleanest city. None of them can get their story straight.

As Inspector Low gets closer to the unpalatable truth, the search for the murderer races to a gripping, horrifying finish. An intelligent, thoughtprovoking novel, Marina Bay Sins is Humphreys at his satirical best.

“Marina Bay Sins is the crime novel Singapore’s been waiting for.”
—Colin Goh, filmmaker

“Who knows a place better than a novelist unafraid to tell a true story?”
—Tom Plate, journalist

“Neil Humphreys has a knack for tapping the pulse of the
collective consciousness with a delightfully warped sensibility.”
—Adrian Pang, actor
