Malaya, 1941 – a fool’s haven from the devastating war raging elsewhere in the world. Author Nicholas Snow takes readers on an adventure of espionage and political intrigue in his newest novel “Malayan Enigma.”

Sent to Singapore towards the end of 1941 to evaluate the intentions of the Japanese Empire, Lieutenant Andrew Bond finds himself embroiled in a series of events accelerating towards all-out war in the region. The city, a heady, exotic blend of cultures teeming with intrigue, is oblivious to what lies ahead. Facing betrayal, incompetence, Japanese spies, and the Yakuza underworld, Bond manages to gather a band of trustworthy companions, including the striking beauty Liu-Yang.

“This book is the first of a series of stories featuring the same protagonist and his experiences during the Second World War,” said Snow. “Although fictional, the stories are based on solid historical and technical facts, which is why I include notes and references for readers who might wish to dig deeper into the historical background.”

In a desperate race against time, Bond must force his way through enemy-infested jungles and seas to bring home a device that will help change the course of the war – the Malayan Enigma.
