      "Those eyes... Su Lai lowered the phone. They didn't seem to fear for Angie's safety. Su Lai held Anna's gaze. No. Those eyes, dark as molasses and wet at the corners, bore the same expression whenever Anna did something wrong... Anna is feeling guilty, she thought. She must be hiding something important. But what? And why?"Meet Jinny Koh, author-in-residence at Huggs-Epigram Coffee Bookshop for a chat about her book The Gods Will Hear Us Eventually.
