The feng shui detective by Nury Vittachi( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr. Wong is a feng shui consultant, but his cases tend to involve a lot more than just interior decoration. You see, Wong specializes in a certain type of problem premises: crime scenes. He and his brash teenage Aussie-American ex-pat intern (think an Asian Sherlock Holmes paired up with Kelly Osbourne) travel around Singapore solving crimes while trying to decipher each other's language and behavior. His latest case involves a mysterious young woman who, according to a psychic reading, is doomed to die. Wong's desperate efforts to save her eventually lead him and his sidekick to Sydney where the story climaxes at the Opera House, a building known for its appalling feng shui. A delightful combination of crafty plotting, quirky humor, and Asian philosophy, the Feng Shui Detective is an investigator like no other!

The feng shui detective by Nury Vittachi( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"CF Wong is not quite a private eye, nor exactly a Zen sage. He is a feng shui master, a eomancer who consults to people who want to optimise the energy flow of their buildings. But his work has a habit of presenting him with problems of a less mystical, even criminal, nature. This summer he has been saddled with a favour for his boss: to supervise a young Australian woman on work experience. Riotous cultural onfusion results as the unlikely pair travel across Asia solving mysteries in a style reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes. A delightful combination of crafty plotting, quirky humour and Asian philosophy, the Feng Shui Detective is an investigator like no other."--Provided by publisher
