From publisher's website: When inspector Chen goes on Holiday, Chen's demonic partner Zhu Irzh finds himself alone in Singapore Three. The missing body of a brutally murdered socialite and the strange experiments of a well connected, beautiful young heiress leads Zhu into a maze of murder and corruption. Liz Williams (Snake Agent) delivers another Inspector Chen novel that further explores the mystical worlds that surround the near future city of Singapore Three. The convoluted politics of Hell marked the central conflict of Snake Agent, but in The Demon and the City, the Celestial Realms and their less-then-perfect social and familial relationships take center stage.
