A fifties murder mystery set in Malaya from author of the popular Crowner John books. Arriving in Singapore, newly-qualified pathologist Tom Howden soon discovers that his new home is a hotbed of scandal and intrigue. When an English planter is attacked one night, the finger of suspicion points at local bandits. It soon becomes clear, however, that the situation is far more complicated - and deadly - than it first appeared. Tom Howden's newly-acquired forensic skills are about to be put to the ultimate test.

Murder in the malay emergency
As usual Bernard Knight writes an authentic tale, about a young pathologist in Malaya during the emergency in the 1950s. Although told at a gentle pace you get a real feel for the lives lived in the last years of British involvement.I got the feeling much of the experience was autobiographical?
A novel set in a forgotten time
I like his other narrations of Bernard Knights books, preferrring the other narrations as there were a few slips in this one.
No just easy listening and a good story
