Title: Escape From Happy Palace

Author: Jai Patel

Genre: Mystery

Publication Date: March 2020

Pages: 186

Mei Mei is a runaway masseuse in Kuala Lumpur’s gritty underbelly of Chow Kit. Once the rising star of Happy Palace, she now has nothing but the clothes on her back and her side of a story: one that involves a massage parlor trick called The Leap Of The Dragon…

…and a dead man on her massage bed.

The news reaches sharp-tongued trans prostitute Joy and short-tempered hawker Longkang Loga through an unlikely messenger, and the race to save a fellow citizen of the streets begins. But before they can free Mei Mei from a fate she doesn’t deserve, they first need to free themselves of their fears.

Malaysia native Jai Patel was born in the East Coast state of Kelantan and grew up in Malacca and Perlis. He studied at Multimedia University (MMU) alongside some of the country’s most decorated filmmakers, animators, and video game designers. He began writing fiction in 2019, focusing on mysteries and thrillers that revolve around everyday people placed in extraordinary situations.
Escape From Happy Palace is his debut novel. He is currently working on his second murder mystery, Eight-Eight Foodcourt, which will be published in early 2021. When not writing, he can be found playing open-world RPGs, discovering single-origin coffee, and making awful noises with his Fender Strat. He lives in Petaling Jaya with his wife.
