“The Mushroom Tree Mystery is set in Singapore in a time when the Allies have defeated Germany in Europe, but Japan refuses to surrender the East.
Amid rumours that the Japanese occupiers are preparing to wipe out the population of the island rather than surrender, a young Japanese aide is found murdered beneath the termite mushroom tree in Hideki Tagawa’s garden and the plans for a massive poison gas bomb go missing. To prevent any more destruction it falls to Su Lin to track down the real killer with the help of Hideki Tagawa’s old nemesis, the charismatic shinto priest Yoshio Yoshimo.”
