The Policewoman is Sarah Dharmawan, an officer with the Indonesian National Police attached to Densus-88, their antiterrorism unit. She has been assigned to a task force formed by Interpol to investigate and destroy The Cartel, narcoterrorists involved in the manufacture and distribution of drugs in Great Britain and Indonesia. Sarah is drawn to another member of the task force, Michael, the commander of B Squadron of the SAS. Together they make a formidable team.
At first, Sarah is hard to believe. Stunning looks, abs of steel and capable of taking on a team of narcoterrorists on her own, she is more like Supergirl. When she is invited to a weekend training exercise with Michael's unit and is introduced to its' members, she displays her humor and vulnerabilities and becomes a character to remember.
While Roberts book takes place in the future, the war on drugs makes this story all too real. This is a book that I will surely recommend to my friends.
First off let's get the genre out of the way. The Policewoman is at its heart an action/adventure/romance. It is also a crime story, a special ops primer, and a real culture lesson for some of us.
The Policewoman is no boiler plate, formulaic, predictable good guys versus bad guys story. Our hero and heroine are not invincible superheroes but they are nobody to mess with. There is a lot of information here detailing how special ops teams function. This did make the story take a bit longer to develop than the reader may be used to. But it is definitely worth it, it enhances the story as the action and suspense build.
The Policewoman is a very intense story and will grab the reader viscerally, much more emotionally engaging than most other books in the genre. I dare you to not get emotionally hooked, I dare you! But there are moments of levity and downright humor to help lighten the vibe from time to time. This balance is integral to the story, keeping it from being one note and oppressive.
Basically the story is Indonesia, England and Ireland are fighting a drug cartel. No "measured responses" no diplomatic interference. Just no holds barred all out war.
The story is set between Indonesia and Great Britain, so there were a lot of cultural references that were new to me and added flavor to the story.
Great action scenes, graphic violence, not as graphic sex, love both romantic and filial, bureaucratic roadblocks, honor, duty, service and patriotism.
I just found out from the author that a sequel is forthcoming. Once you have read the book you will be as surprised and intrigued as I.
I loved this book. If you like your action/adventure to be more in depth and realistic, The Policewoman by Justin W.M. Roberts (if you look him up on line, be sure to include the W.M. or you'll get the wrong author) will satisfy for sure. Though his bio does not give any such info, The Policewoman reads to me as written by some one with more than a passing knowledge of the field of special ops. I highly recommend this book! Enjoy!
