Feng Shui master C.F. Wong is not exactly fond of change. The 21st century, with its rush-rush, its chattering technology, its fusion-food (he shudders), is all about change. Master Wong likes the eternal truths, which do not change, and do not need cell phones to communicate. And yet it is a contemporary truth that Master Wong has left Singapore for Shanghai, an older city—perhaps it will be calmer? Not so much, and certainly not after a band of crazed vegan terrorists has taken Shanghai hostage. Only Master Wong can save the city from the destructive passions of the ferocious tofu-eaters, as well as some visiting foreign dignitaries and—perhaps most important—an extremely rare white elephant. In his "endearingly wacky" detective series (Times, London), Nury Vittachi mines culture clash for thoughtful humor, slyly poking fun at both East and West.
