From official release/information:
The Demon and the City is a Detective Inspector Chen novel, although Chen doesn't enter the story until the midpoint of the book. Seneschal Zhu Irzh, a demon on loan to the Singapore Three police department, is sent to investigate a suspicious death. The attack was so savage that it took some investigation by the coroner to determine that the body was female. Once the victim is identified as Deveth Sardai, daughter to a wealthy family with lots of connections, Irzh is pulled off the case since they don't want a demon dealing with the upper class of Singapore Three.
