Summary

Singapore is often known as a 'clean' country and its citizens 'law-abiding'. However, every once in a while, the island has been shocked by an incident or a crime so unexpected and shocking, it grabs headlines and piques the interest of locals and international press alike. Spanning across all kinds of crimes, this collection has one thing in common - shock value. Cases covered in the book include high-profile ones like the NKF scandal, the City Harvest Church debacle, Singapore's most-wanted terrorist, Mas Selamat, and how one man in Singapore - Nick Leeson - brought down one of the UK's oldest financial institutions, Barings Bank. Plus, there are a few shocking murders thrown in too. This book is a collection for anyone interested in Singapore society, law and history, to find out more about how these cases were discovered, the law-enforcement processes that followed and what happened to the offenders after the cases ended.
