Safe, straitlaced 1970s Singapore is terrorised by The Strangler, a bizarre killer who targets single, successful career women and removes the hands of his victims. Despite the rumours doing the rounds, young Miss Moorthy feels safe as a secondary school teacher. That is, until her colleague, Evelyn Ngui, is murdered, and her freespirited flatmate, Connie, encounters the murderer in their house.

Now sensible Miss Moorthy has no choice. She must investigate. Will she pin down the motivations of The Strangler? Will she understand his association with the nave Evelyn Ngui? Most importantly, will she come out alive, as she stumbles upon forgotten secrets?

Find out, as Miss Moorthy handles school students, anxious parents, a stuffed blue rabbit, and possibly, more than one killer, with aplomb.
