The winner of the 2nd Fixi Novo Malaysian Novel Contest
Inspector Dominic Wong was part of a task force to catch Shadowman, who started abducting and murdering children a decade earlier. The nickname stuck because many believed there was a supernatural element in the cases.
Inspector Nadra Sunai’s ordeal begins when a child is abducted right under her nose. Nadra sees a white-haired man together with the girl, but her partner doesn’t. The case gets another twist when the kidnapper leaves an envelope addressed to her, with a cryptic message inside.
Both inspectors suffer wrenching personal losses in their attempts to get closure. Their beliefs and principles are challenged when the quest for justice leads them down a mystifying path.
NOT A MONSTER is a debut thriller about crime, retribution and the power of destiny.
