Overview: Barbara Ismail spent several years in Kelantan, Malaysia in the 1970s and '80s, living in Kampong Dusun and Pengkalan Chepa, studying Wayang Siam and the Kelantanese dialect. She holds a Ph.D in Anthropology from Yale University, and is originally from Brooklyn, New York. Shadow Play is the first in Barbara Ismail's series of "Kain Songket Mysteries" based in Kelantan.
Kelantanese kain songket trader and amateur sleuth Mak Cik Maryam is plunged once again into the shadowy world of murder, hatred and madness when a fellow market woman is killed after a successful main puteri (princess play) curing ceremony. Sorcery is suspected, though Maryam believes there are sufficient human suspects to investigate before considering the supernatural. Solving the crime requires the unravelling of a knot of family secrets, madness and familiar spirits. Once again Mak Cik Maryam brings Kelantan common sense, jewellery and an instinct for truth to shed light on a situation which appears at first to be insoluble. Follow Malaysia's favourite female detective in Princess Play, the second Kelantanese murder case in the Kain Songket Mysteries series.
Tiger spirits prowl Kampong Penambang in the third novel of the award-winning Kain Songket Mysteries detective series set in Kelantan, Malaysia.

But her detection soon spirals out of control with a plethora of suspects who wanted him dead, including almost everyone he knew.
Maryam falls victim to a hala spell turning her into a were-tiger, terrifying her and her family, and leaving her vulnerable to any number of evil influences. Join Mak Cik Maryam in her latest adventure,
Spirit Tiger, as she investigates Kelantan’s gambling underworld.
