Sinister Twilight: The Fall of Singapore
by Noel Barber (Author)
Book Description: Filled with drama, this classic account follows every step that led to the disastrous fall of Singapore to the Japanese in February 1942. The Japanese army, though outnumbered by 20,000 men, defeated the British only one week after the actual assault began. "Fortress" Singapore turned out to be nothing of the sort, with its defenders ill prepared and complacent. It was all too ripe for handing Japan its second victory of the war after Hong Kong.

No Money, No Honey! : A Candid Look at Sex-for-sale in Singapore
by David Brazil
Book Description: In his book, David Brazil reckons that about 6,000 women are involved in the sex-for-sale business in Singapore. Most of it is located in government-designated, out-of-town areas and is controlled and supervised. A special feature of the book is the "true stories" section - 12 women in most forms of sex-for-sale talk frankly and openly about their work, their clients, how much they earn and how they feel about men. Brazil also details the profile of the sex worker in Singapore: mistresses, models, actresses, high-class escorts, lounge hostesses, the women in Geylang's lorongs, housewife "part-timers" and even schoolgirls.

West from Singapore
by Louis L'Amour
He's a two-fisted American adventurer and veteran of a hundred waterfront brawls. He's "Ponga Jim" Mayo, and he minds his own business and leaves international intrigue to others. But, as master of his own tramp freighter, trouble seeks him out as he navigates the treacherous East Indian seas from Borneo to Singapore. Never one to back away from danger, Jim straps on his colt automatic and takes the helm of the Semiramis, ready to battle pirates and spies, dope peddlers and gunrunners... The Publisher
