    Six suicide bombers have slipped into Singapore. Their mission: to set off explosives on the country’s 55th National Day.

    They were sent by Tun, an Afghan with a tragic past. Trying to stop them is Inspector Rahim, who is tracking a new terror group. And caught up in the plot is Henry, a single parent whose wife revealed a terrible secret on her deathbed.

  • “Playing on that very real fear and threat of terrorism haunting our shores, Andre Yeo’s 9th of August paints a dark, startlingly unambiguous and uncompromising picture of what might happen when terror does strike, and why.”
    —Cyril Wong, bestselling author of This Side of Heaven
