The year is 1892, and troubles are brewing in Singapore’s Chinatown. A dead American is found floating in the middle of a canal. Tensions are brewing among Chinese gangs, which are preparing to clash in a  turf war. And a mysterious Hindu artefact is stirring up trouble – both natural and supernatural.

Such is the tangled web of intrigue that forms the narrative of Singapore Black, a hard-boiled historical thriller written by Jakarta-based American author William L. Gibson.
