Paperback: Inspector Singh is irate. He has been instructed to attend a Commonwealth conference on policing in London: a job for paper pushers, not real cops, as far as he is concerned.
And as if that is not bad enough, his wife is determined to come along to shop for souvenirs and visit previously unknown relatives.
But it is not long before the cold case that lands on Singh's ample lap turns into a hot potato and he has to outwit Scotland Yard, his wife and London's finest criminals to prevent more frightful executions from occurring on his watch - or indeed, from being added to their number.
Inspector Singh returns in the seventh chapter of his thrilling series. With Flint's customary wit and ability to always spin a good Asian-flavoured yarn, A Frightfully English Execution (2016) is her best one yet.
