Ah Hock is an ordinary man of simple means. Born and raised in a Malaysian fishing village, he favors stability above all, a preference at odds with his rapidly modernizing surroundings. So what brings him to kill a man? While the victim has been mourned and the killer has served time for the crime, Ah Hock's motive remains unclear. His vivid confession unfurls over extensive interviews with a journalist, herself a local whose life has taken a very different course. -- adapted from jacket.
