Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish!

Goodreads | Eric_W Welch (Forreston, IL)'s review of Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish!:

A charming homage to John Dickson Carr, master of the "locked room" mysteries. Zhang is excited because he has been called to the location of a murder in which the scene is straight out of Carr and Zhang recognizes that in Singapore, where few crimes are committed, he may never get another opportunity to emulate the great literary detectives.  Sergeant Lee plays Watson to Zhang's assumed role of Holmes.

A man is found dead in his hotel room, stabbed, but with no murder weapon in the room and CCTV showing that no one had entered or left the room during the very small window of time when he had to have been killed.  Zhang runs through the classic definitions of locked room possibilities, violating protocol by refusing to permit Lee to call for Forensics, insisting he will solve the crime using only his "little gray cells."

Free short story on Kindle. Leather has written a series of Inspector Zhang stories that are quite entertaining and very inexpensive.
