Year of the Tiger

Year of the Tiger promises to be a fun action thriller set in Singapore with a global appeal. It is set to hit the bookshops here in early August 2012. It will also be available as an ebook.


During World War II, the Imperial Japanese Army under General Tomoyuki Yamashita looted untold amounts of gold and other valuables from across its occupied colonies in Southeast Asia to finance the empire’s ongoing military expansion.

But when the tide of war turned against
Japan in 1943, much of this treasure had to be buried in secret. Over the decades, the search for the legendary Yamashita’s Gold had been in vain until now ...

A group of foreign workers digging a tunnel under the
Padang in present-day Singapore stumbled across one treasure vault and inadvertently triggered a biological booby trap. An unknown strain of anthrax was released threatening a global holocaust.

It is now up to a special team of investigators in
Singapore to decipher a cryptic clue left behind with the loot to halt this deadly plague.

Year of the Tiger takes readers on a roller-coaster journey of political wrangling, murky history and secret organisations, from World War II
Singapore to the present day, to discover the elusive cure for a seemingly unstoppable anthrax pandemic.
