As for Malay Woman, it's another dandy adventure story from Fleischman. It begins in the airport in Singapore, where Jock Hamilton is trying to get out of the country. He has a small problem. His wife is dead, he might have killed her (he can't remember), and the cops are after him. When the cops show up at the airport, Jock makes a run for it and stows away on a boat headed for Kuala Tang and the rubber plantation of Jock's friend Gabb.
After that it gets complicated by a beautiful woman, a couple of hired killers, another beautiful woman, terrorists (Reds!) attacking rubber plantations, and another murder. The local color's so strong you'll feel the humidity yourself, and the plot never slows down.
Stark House is to be commended, as usual, for another fine package. Nab it as soon as you can.
