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
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.

Posted August 13, 2013 by Catherine Sim , SantosYear of the Tiger proved itself to be a thrilling ride combining history from World War Two with modern day threat of bioterrorism. I loved the way politics and the interfering media helped to propel the plot forward. Overall a great read.
