Five books into the Ash Carter series by Murray Bailey so you probably know if you like these or not. I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of the latest one. Singapore Killer is a plot driven thriller set in the 1950s, though most of the character display very modern sensibilities and it's easy to understand who they are. A serial killer is operating amongst the military police. There’s a lot of interesting incident - helicopter crashes, religious cults, smuggling, guerrillas etc. The characters are relatively broad strokes and some of the military ones are a bit bland. I’m afraid you will very quickly narrow the villain down to two men but it's touch and go which is the killer before the reveal. That’s not a huge problem, the pleasure of the book is in its pace and I read it in just a couple of days. Fast entertainment for fans of Jack Reacher and his ilk.
