- About the Author
The country is killing her people.
An unexplained crime wave washes over Singapore and Minister Chew is tasked with the responsibility of ending it. Navigating around red tape, Minister Chew scrambles to find the answers to the crime wave and the never-ending stream of people falling off HDB flats. As the situation spirals out of control into one of complicity and apathy, Minister Chew is forced to reckon with his values and make a decision for both himself and the task force he leads.
A gritty outlook on the Singaporean condition, Goh blows the common trope of the HDB flat wide open, taking it further than many writers have dared to.
Daren Goh is an amateur fiction author with a day job. He’s also part of the founding team of The Proletariat Poetry Factory, and has performed as a poet, musician, and manager through its performances at The Night Festival, Singapore Writers’ Festival, and flea markets over the last ten years. He habitually reads long books by D-named authors he doesn’t quite understand, though he hopes to one day. In the meantime, he’ll work on his novels (he has three full ones, and two half ones) until they’re crisp and tasty enough to be published and enjoyed by people all over the world.
