About the Book

The second book following The Advocate’s Devil featuring Dennis Chiang, an up-and-coming lawyer, who finds himself thrown into the heady 1930s mix of Singapore society under the wings of one of the Straights Settlement’s top lawyers, Mr D’Almeida.

 

Follow Dennis Chiang during a period of great uncertainty, as news of an impending Japanese invasion looms. Little does Chiang know that his life is about to become a lot more exciting—and dangerous. Roped in by the British Special Branch as an undercover operative to weed out Japanese agents subverting and undermining the morale of an Indian Army garrison sent to defend Malaya, Chiang finds himself going from criminal lawyer in a courtroom to an adept and rugged spy in the jungles of Malaya.
