Aunty Lee's Deadly Specials

Author: Ovidia Yu Narrator: Emily Woo Zeller Release Date: June 2020

Few know more about what goes on in Singapore than Aunty Lee. When a scandal over illegal organ donation involving prominent citizens makes news, she already has a list of suspects. There's no time to snoop, though-Aunty Lee's Delights is catering a brunch for local socialites Henry and Mabel Sung at their opulent house. Rumor has it that the Sung's fortune is in trouble, and Aunty Lee wonders if the gossip is true. But soon after arriving at the Sung's house, her curiosity turns to suspicion. Why is a storage house she discovers locked? What is the couple arguing about behind closed doors? Where is the guest of honor who never showed up? Then, Mabel Sung and her son Leonard are found dead. The authorities blame it on Aunty Lee's special stewed chicken with buah keluak, a local black nut that can be poisonous if cooked improperly. Aunty Lee has never carelessly prepared a dish. She's certain the deaths are murder-and that they're somehow linked to the organ donor scandal. To save her business and her reputation, she's got to prove it-and unmask a dangerous killer whose next victim may just be Aunty Lee.

A Fatal Fabergé

Author: Ellery Adams, Parker Riggs Narrator: Andi Arndt Release Date: June 2020

In the grips of a cold and drab autumn, Collector's Weekly reporter Molly Appleby is thrilled to be attending a festive black-tie fundraiser hosted by the very private Natasha Gordon, an heiress known for her charitable events and aversion to the limelight. It's Molly first chance to see the stunning interior of the Gordon estate, but when a rare book dealer is pushed from a high window to his death, she's confronted with a sight that's become all too common for her. And despite the fact that the crude and pompous victim was roundly disliked by all who knew him and that any number of people may have wanted him dead, Molly agrees to look into the murder for his surviving son. As the police go about their steady business of interviewing the dozens of people in attendance that night, Molly decides to look closer to home and begins questioning the staff and anyone else connected to the estate and the victim. More and more stories of the dead man's troubled life and marriage begin to emerge, including a potentially lucrative deal that's gone bust and an old Gordon family heirloom that's gone missing-a rare jeweled Faberge egg once owned by the Empress Alexandra of Russia. When clues to the murderer's identity begin to accumulate, so too do the threats to Molly, and she knows she's getting close to the truth.
