Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Inspector Zhang Gets His Wish by Stephen Leather is a free short story in the Amazon Kindle store, and you can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/lG7Nx7 into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Inspector Zhang loves mysteries, but as a Detective Inspector with the Singapore Police Force he knows that mysteries are few and far between. There are relatively few crimes in the city state and those that are committed are usually solved quickly. But that all changes when Inspector Zhang is called to a top Singapore hotel where a guest has been found murdered in a locked room. The guest made a phone call to room service shortly before he was killed – but CCTV footage shows that nobody entered or left the room. So finally Inspector Zhang has his wish – a mystery to solve. But will it be too much for him?

This is short story, just under 9000 words, equivalent to about 30 pages. A perfect read if you have an hour to kill.
