A Bizarre Tale

I entered a building the other day to meet someone. A guy walked in, took the escalator and doesn’t realise he had dropped a document.

I picked it up and alerted him. He took the other escalator down and thanked me for it.

Then I go up to the 9th floor by elevator for my meeting.

What I didn’t know was that I had lost my wallet until a security woman approached me.

“Strange isn’t it?” She said. “You returned the other person’s document, and now I am returning your wallet.”

    I have published two novels set in the police and security services in Singapore, and I am here to tell you that SMOKESCREEN is nearer to the truth of that closely controlled little country than you might believe. It is a gripping and creepy tale of how governments can rig the way we all see the world.
