CF Wong is an old feng shui master, a consultant to people who want to optimise the energy flow of their buildings. But his work has a habit of presenting him with problems of a less mystical, even criminal, nature.

This summer he has been saddled with a favour for his boss, a young Australian woman on work experience. 'I'm like, "So how am I going to become an instant feng shooee master then?" And my dad's like, "My mate Mr Pun's got a real feng shooee master and you can work for him for three months." And I'm like, "Wow."'

Riotous cultural confusion results as the unlikely pair travel across Asia solving mysteries in a style reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes. A delightful combination of crafty plotting, quirky humour and Asian philosophy, the Feng Shui Detective is an investigator like no other.

The second novel in the series, Feng Shui Detective Goes South, was published in June 2002 by Duffy & Snellgrove.
