ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Every now and then, our shop holds events where we invite authors, readers, and basically anyone interested in books to talk about all things literature.
On the evening of Aug 23, we were pleased and honoured to launch Bernice Chauly’s new poetry collection Incantantions/Incarcerations. Bernice is one of Malaysia’s leading poets, novelists and all-round literary activist, and she was in top form as she opened up about her work, her life and her poetry in conversation with poet and lecturer Lawrence Ypil.
We kicked off the evening with Bernice reading from her latest poetry collection. The book is available in-store at RM28.
PRAISE BE for Margaret Atwood’s much-anticipated The Testaments, the long-awaited sequel to her 1985 critically acclaimed novel, The Handmaid’s Tale.
