Escape From Happy Palace by Jai Patel
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.
