Penny Dreadful

Hong Kong. Endless Summer. International City. Idyllic beaches. Glitzy skyscrapers. What can possibly go wrong Jasmine Spitfire, Hong Kong’s social counsellor extraordinaire, thought her world would forever consist of the disillusioned, the disgruntled and the mildly depressed. She’s wrong. The moment a gruesome murder darkens her doorstep, Spitfire’s world teeters on the cusp of paranoia and self-destruction. Jasmine embarks on an investigation that puts in her radar a cast of suspects, making the crowded city even more claustrophobic. Was it Piers’ disgruntled wife? His colleagues who are salivating for his job? His beautiful, ambitious mistress? When the clues don’t add up but the dead bodies begin to pile up, fiery Spitfire must race against time–and overcome her own demons–to find and stop the real murderer. An intense, white-knuckle whodunit thriller set amidst the glittering cityscape, dark alleyways, and majestic shorelines of Hong Kong, Penny Dreadful throws you in the front seat of an exciting, suspenseful ride and compels you to keep your eyes, and your heart, wide open. “Books like Penny Dreadful are hard to come by. It’s rare to see a finely crafted whodunit with soul. It’s hard not to like Jasmine Spitfire because she reminds us of you and I.” Goodreads “Much more than a thriller, ‘Penny Dreadful’ is a scathing commentary on Hong Kong society, woven into an intricate, heart-rending yet uplifting page turner that holds you hostage until the very end… Spellbinding!” – JB Lazarte, Carlos Palanca Awardee and author of ‘All the Darkness Unseen.’
