  • Nice police procedural in a different-ish setting

    I’m a fan of police procedurals, and also of mysteries set in interesting locations, and so I was glad to receive an ARC of 21 Immortals by Rozlan Mohd Noor in exchange for my honest review. And I enjoyed reading this book very much. I really do appreciate a good police procedural, and have fun imagining whether I could follow the clues and make the same deductions that the investigators do. And it’s also fun to enjoy, along with the investigators, those moments when things seem to fall into place, even if I didn’t figure it all out myself. This book let me do both. Without being spoiler-ish, I especially liked the way that Inspector Mislan figured out where/how the initial murders took place. I also liked the descriptions of Kuala Lumpur (KL), which gave me a sense of the city that I didn’t have before, having visited it only once in the past, for a brief few hours, on a business trip. Given the unusual (to me) locale, I was a bit taken aback by how similar the investigation process, and also the politics of the investigation, were to what I could imagine taking place in my home country, the US. So, I actually googled the author to see whether he should, in fact, know what he’s talking about, and I found that he is an ex- police officer in the Malaysian police force, who worked as an Investigation Officer for 11 years in KL. So I guess he probably is really writing what he knows! All-in-all, I enjoyed the book a lot, and having noticed that there are a few more titles in this series available in paper book format, I hope more are made available as e-books soon. Please note that I tend to be pretty conservative in awarding stars, only giving five stars to maybe one in thirty or forty books, the ones I think I’ll read and re-read and re-read again. So four stars is a great rating from me and means I really recommend a book. And my thanks again to the publisher for the ARC!

  • Well paced, good plot

    Very much enjoyed this look into policing in Malaysian. The main characters were eminently likeable, human and interesting. The storyline was well thought out, with enough twists and turns to keep things very interesting. Well worth a look.

    Thanks for your feedback!
