Angela Lin's spot-on accents conjure Singapore's eclectic culture and social hierarchy in this intriguing story about sleuthing maids. When their friend is accused of murdering her employer, three Filipina domestic workers in Singapore start their own investigation to clear her. Lin's portrayals of the maids and their employers bring out their very different personalities and conflicts: reserved Cora and her overly involved Ma'am Elizabeth, brazen Donita and critical Mrs. Fann, and angelic Angel and her troubles. Lin's restrained pace and tone bring out the author's simple yet powerful descriptions of the flavorful melting pot of Singaporean culture, with its excesses of wealth and exploitation of the maid trade. This engrossing audiobook may be especially appreciated by fans of Nita Prose's novel THE MAID. M.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
