SMOKESCREEN Press & Reviews

My recent interview on Channel News Asia’s Singapore Tonight, aired on 5 September 2014, with hosts Dawn Tan and John Leong.  We discussed, among many things,  some of the places in Singapore mentioned in the novel like Little India and Chinatown.  Months earlier, I had been invited to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to give a book reading @Seksan. The occasion was hosted by Sharon Bakar of the Malaysian Book Club. In between I found time to do a video clip for Fiction Frenzy, a Canadian vlog hosted by Anne-Rae Vasquez, a journalist and an author of several fiction. You can find the blog on YouTube.

Millennium Post

Singapore being the epicentre of international espionage seems like an unlikely plot device for an espionage thriller. And yet Khalid Talib’s debut novel ‘Smokescreen’ exploits this plot device to the hilt. Why Singapore of all places? Well, Israel established diplomatic relations with the island country in 1969 and the two nations reportedly enjoyed ‘extensive security relationship’. So if one looks at it the novel does have some real life underpinnings… » Read More linesepgrey-yel

Book to the Future

Whenever I read a thriller there is always a temptation – which I try to avoid – to mention such well-worn classic clichés such as ‘fast paced’ and ‘page turning’ and ‘labyrinthine’. In this case though that is difficult as that is precisely what this book is, however it would be disingenuous of me to dismiss them in this case… » Read More linesepgrey-yel

The Book Haven

Thanks to Frederick Forsyth, Ian Fleming and John Le Carre, the last 100 years had had its share of cold war espionage novels. While CIA, MI6, and KGB kept us highly entertained, maybe we need a break from the familiar landscapes of US, Britain and Russia. How about an intriguing plot involving Israel and Singapore with a touch of Cairo? Khaled Talib, in his debut novel, brings you a cold blooded and action packed world of espionage different from the conventional thrillers… » Read More linesepgrey-yel

After I had finished writing my first novel, SMOKESCREEN, a thriller, I promised myself not to write another.  I wasn’t sure if I had energy left to struggle with the same problems and obstacles of writing:  the lack of time, rejection, and the frustration of revision.  I was out of breath, drained of emotion, and sapped of energy.  But then I found myself working on several chapters for a new story… » Read More linesepgrey-yel

When I was eight years old, I saw a dark and eerie pencil sketch hanging in the study of a relative’s home:  A man holding a test tube with an apparition of a demon staring at him.
