The sub-title to this novel is about a Singapore Mystery. It is a mystery for Aunty Lee to play private detective. Aunty Lee owns the café Aunty Lee’s Delights that serves Peranakan food. I liked how the author Ovidia Yu introduces these many well-known and delicious foods into the story. Readers could be forgiven if they thought that they were reading a tourist guides to Peranakan food.
The mystery of death of a person known to Aunty Lee is too much for her to be left to the police force to investigate. She got into the act to unravel the mystery and subsequent events after the death.
