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 fi nance 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 stumbles across a treasure vault and inadvertently triggers a biological booby trap. An unknown strain of anthrax is released, threatening a global holocaust. It is up to Assistant Superintendent Gerald Loh of the Singapore Police Force 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 to discover the elusive cure for a seemingly unstoppable pandemic.

Year of the Tiger

Set in Singapore, Year of the Tiger weaves an interesting tale, blending history and urban legends in a fast-paced fiction thriller. Imperial Japan which occupied Singapore and much of South East Asia during World War II looted much gold and other valuables. Some was sent back to Tokyo while others had to be hidden in secret when Japan's fate in the war turned and it was impossible to send home its plundered wealth. This treasure vault remained forgotten until workers in Singapore digging a tunnel uncovered it and unknowingly let loose an unknown strain of anthrax which the Japanese Army had used to protect its treasure. Investigators searching for a cure are left to decipher a cryptic clue left behind while in the shadows, the hand of politics is quick to seize this opportunity for its own ends. Overall it was a most enjoyable read!
