Rich Kill Poor Kill
By Neil Humphreys
Bestselling novelist Neil Humphreys returns with an explosive, psychological crime thriller. The second installment in the popular Inspector Low series, Rich Kill Poor Kill is a dark, disturbing examination of the income divide that exists even in death.
When a foreign worker is found dead in a Singapore back street, few people care. Even the police dismiss the killing as another underclass slaying. And then another victim turns up, and then another, all killed with the same weapon.
With its reputation as a safe, global city in ruins, Singapore struggles to come to grips with its first serial killer in decades.
And when a famous woman disappears, terror takes hold.
After killing foreign workers and backpackers, the murderer crosses the line when he moves into high society. Hysteria sweeps the nation. The murderer must be stopped at any cost.
In desperation, the authorities turns to the one man they loathe almost as much as the serial killer – Detective Inspector Stanley Low.
The policeman’s career is all but over. Belligerent and unrepentant, Low’s insubordination has been punished with a menial desk job. He’s angry and refusing to address his bipolar condition, making him the least qualified detective to head a murder investigation with the world watching.
He is also the only man capable of understanding what drives the serial killer. But Low’s mental health deteriorates as he mimics the mind of a madman in search of the sickening truth. He must solve the case quickly to stop a serial killer and save his sanity.
