Pulp fiction has been defined as 'Novels written for mass consumption, often emphasizing exciting and titillating plots'. Exciting, it most certainly is; tittilating, you decide. 21 Immortals: Inspector Mislan and the Yee Sang Murders is an explosive debut from the quietly talented Rozlan Mohd Noor, an ex-police officer, which explains why he knows so much about police work and inside stories. This is a true Malaysian high-tech crime thriller with good cops, bad cops (and badder cops) and triad members, with insights into the workings of the local CSI, and forays into the world of hackers and their viruses, sleeper programs, trojans, ulat, spybots, hound dogs and their link to crime, including murder

Rozlan Mohd Noor was an officer with the Royal Malaysian Police for 11 years before opting for a carrer in human resource management at several major corporations and multinationals and, eventually, opening his own HR and security consultancy. Even after leaving the force, the evolution of crime fighting techniques and the introduction of technology continues to fascinate him. He wrote crime stories to entertain his friends. Later, encouraged by them, he started working on novels.
