The Beast Within – Book One is a fiction novel set in Singapore depicting the lives of Jim and his friends who are willing to bend the rules and look the other way to make a few extra bucks. They took on jobs that ranged from pure absurdity to the regular run-of-the-mill security detail. In a country with one of the strictest laws in the world, the guys toe the line carefully, often deliberating how far they should bend the rules for money.
On the 13th of March 2017, terror struck the nation and brought the country to its knees, and when Jim and his friends realized that the perpetrators were using the same smuggler that their company had been dealing with for years, they decided to take matters into their own hands.
The team soon found themselves risking it all, throwing caution to the wind. While the country was reeling from the terrorist attack, Jim and his friends decided to take the fight to the ones responsible, even if it meant crossing the border and starting a war.
