Description

A Life Of Crime

There is a poster from the Singapore police department which states ‘Low Crime doesn’t mean no Crime!’ It adorns taxis on the island state and causes foreigners to stop and stare. This slogan might be one of the reasons that many people do not think ‘crime fiction’ when they think of the Asian novel.

Shamini Flint, ex-lawyer and writer, will explain why she believes that dipping our toes into the bloody bath of crime fiction writing is a great way to explore the tensions (as well as the curries and the beer!) within modern Asian society.

Join Shamini Flint and Inspector Singh (‘It’s impossible not to warm to the portly, sweating, dishevelled, wheezing Inspector Singh – the Guardian) as she takes us on a journey through the back streets of Asia.

Presented in partnership with The Children’s Book Council of Australia (Qld branch)

Shamini Flint lives in Singapore with her husband and two children. She began her career in law in Malaysia and also worked at an international law firm in Singapore. She travelled extensively around Asia for her work, before resigning to be a stay-at-home mum, writer, part-time lecturer and environmental activist, all in an effort to make up for her 'evil' past as a corporate lawyer! Shamini has written many books for children but is best known for her Inspector Singh Investigates series of crime fiction for adults.
