MALAYSIA'S LEADING BLOG FOR SATIRE & MANGLISH. All characters in this blog are fictitious; any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
Have you read the explosive new ebook "Murdered In Malaysia: The Altantuya Story" yet? The mystery surrounding the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Sharriibuu has long troubled Malaysia and E.S Shankar's new book sheds light on many unanswered questions.
Purchase the 900 page ebook NOW via the Sarawak Report online shop and encourage your friends and family to support our project and the brave author of this book.
This meticulously researched, honest and informative book is for you and for all those Malaysians who want to know the full truth about the disgraceful and barbaric murder of a Mongolian girl, who had the misfortune to associate herself with persons which led ultimately to her murder and the disintegration of her dead body, and perhaps her unborn child, by explosion.
E.S Shankar has produced a tour de force in terms of research and the comprehensive scope of his enquiries, leaving no stone unturned in his quest to bring to light facts that were disgracefully suppressed and covered up by one of the most shocking examples of interference in the judiciary that Malaysia has experienced in its history. The impact on the independence of Malaysia's law enforcement agencies has been far-reaching and malign.
As E.S Shankar's book makes clear, the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu was not an unpremeditated killing, carried out by "rogue cops". It was planned with care and needed the intervention of very powerful people to make it happen - and then when it was discovered, to cover up the truth. And all that simply to save the face and reputation of a very powerful Malaysian personality.
Malaysia owes a debt to this brave author who has dared to lay out the facts that others have attempted to hide. His book may read like a thriller, but it is the chilling truth and everyone should take time to understand its consequences.

1. Exercising democratic rights could place society in a never-ending vicious cycle of instability and insecurity.
2. We are doing the right thing if everybody is unhappy, which means you have to give up something . . . You cannot say this is my right, I must get it. Then others will say they want their rights, too.
3. Racialism is fine, but not racism. This is not spin-doctoring.

Tiger Isle or Pulipore, the corruption capital of the world that mysteriously emerged from the depths of the waters of South East Asia in 200 CE, spirals towards its tipping point in 2012.
Hundreds of billions of dollars of cost over-inflated defence and other government procurement and infrastructure development contracts, national projects “that MUST not fail, ever” and the cosy “win-win” relationships between government and fraudtrepreneur crony “corpo-rat captains of industry”, send Tiger Isle hurtling towards the precipice of third world status and bankruptcy.
Tiger Isle’s evil and despotic President Kapalin plays every card, from race to Tigerist religion to hounding his political nemesis, Maitreya, with trumped-up rape and sodomy charges, to cling on to power. Failure is not an option, as Kapalin and his ambitious and self-promoting wife, expensive Birkin handbag toting ‘Big Porka’ Natasha, are also implicated in the cover-up of the gruesome murder of Tiger Isle’s Oscar-winning actress, dynamited to bits in a secluded forest.
Now, government auditor Rekha and her seven best friends race against time and the threat of a prophecy being fulfilled to save Tiger Isle and its 30 million inhabitants from annihilation, even as Kapalin plots and embarks upon apocalyptic plans that could prove to be the harbinger of World War III.
On the horizon, Rekha, married and a mother of two, sees the looming menace and racist aims of Kapalin’s mentor, bitter ex-President Bhairav, who stirs up extremist and right-wing Tigerist sentiments to undermine Kapalin and replace him with his own son as President.
The fate of a nation hangs in the balance as Rekha prepares for battle with her famous cry of “We are all of One Race, the Human Race.”
Mixing suspense with humor and pathos, E.S. Shankar’s superbly written, original and stunning debut novel ‘TIGER ISLE – A GOVERNMENT OF THIEVES’ is a classic story of endemic corruption in South East Asia and its various frightening totalitarian and racist regimes that pose as benign multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural democracies.“A great read simply for its thrilling plot and wonderfully-imagined setting, but an even better one if you're interested in Malaysian/ South East Asian politics & history.” S.Ganesan.
