The world's biggest and most expensive aircraft is about to make its maiden flight, and CF Wong has been called in to ensure the plane's feng shui is up to scratch. When a man is murdered on board, Mr Wong is delighted he can charge a premium to alleviate the extra negative energy. He's also been appointed to figure out whether the miseries of the British Royal Family are simply a result of bad feng shui, so things are looking profitable.But Wong and his irrepressible assistant, Joyce, soon become embroiled in solving the murder. They're forced to use all their charm, logic and feng-shui mastery if they want to live to feng shui another day. Nury Vittachi takes off in this latest instalment of the eccentric and wildly entertaining Feng Shui Detective series.

I really enjoyed the last Mr Wong novel: it was full of word play, vivid writing and, had a tidy plot amongst all the mayhem.
Mr Wong Goes West is an unfortunate title, since this book goes west in too many ways. There are a couple of scenes in which the absurdities of language are played around with, there are a few stretches of vivid writing, but in general there’s a feeling of aimlessness about the thing. The characters are blurred rather than sharp; the murder mystery is solved, but without giving us any reason why it was committed in the first place; and the last fifty pages appear to have been tacked on to make an exciting ending. They have little to do with the rest of the story, and again, Mr Vittachi fails to give us a reason why.
Readable, but disappointing.
