 Ovidia Yu on Aunty Lee’s Delights and Aunty Lee’s Deadly Specials.

Ovidia Yu reads from and discusses her popular detective series based on Rosie “Aunty” Lee—feisty widow, amateur sleuth and proprietor of Singapore’s best-loved home cooking restaurant. In the latest in the series, Aunty Lee, hobbled by a twisted ankle, find herself drawn into the murder of a British expat who has been found dead in her hotel. In the earlier book in the series, Aunty Lee’s Deadly Specials, our intrepid sleuth is back in a witty mystery involving scandal and murder among the city’s elite.
