Scorpion Orchid

Author: Lloyd Fernando Narrator: Brendon Fernandez Audiobook and E-book

An exciting first novel set in pre-independence Singapore.

Excerpts from classical Malay and colonial English sources appear throughout the narrative, illuminating the roots and significance of this period in history.
