PAUL HARRIS was in Kuala Lumpur when the news of his brother’s death reached him. Jeff had been shot dead in his flat in Singapore. There were many reasons why he might have been killed, not least the clandestine operations which he and Paul carried on under cover of their rich arid successful trading company, and which they regarded as their personal contribution to the protection of neighbouring countries against Communism. Paul couldn’t co-operate with the police without disclosing too much. His determination to track down the killer himself leads him into a deadly game of blindman’s-buff; sweeps him into the mill-race of international intrigue and brings him to violence and near-death. He is forced to realise that even those nearest to him, his wife and Kate, the girl he had come to love, are involved in a deadly affair in which the unknown enemy always seems just one move ahead of him and that the bland, persistent Inspector Kang of the Singapore police is watching him and waiting . . .
Adult, fast and exciting, ‘Suddenly, at Singapore’ . . . combines the pace of a thriller with the ingenuity of a detective story. An exotic background and characters of outstanding reality add distinction to Gavin Black’s first book, which is a notable achievement.
