Dutch expat Julia de Rijck uses husband Paul's telescope to spy on Dave across the pool in their luxury Singapore condominium. Despite their mutual attraction there is something about the man that makes Julia uneasy. When Dave's maid, Angelica, dies in suspicious circumstances, Julia gets pulled into a world of secrets and discovers a less visible Singapore of exploitation and prostitution.

The Expat is a gripping story of greed, love, infidelity and crime in Singapore.

A man in uniform gestured with his forefinger. As his window slid down, the parking attendant said, ‘You can’t park here this long, sir.’
