This is my stop today for the blog tour of The Policewoman by Justin W M Roberts.
I have read the blurb of the book when Jill Burkinshaw wanted hosts for tour and I emailed her. And once again I wasn’t disappointed.
Narcoterrorism wreaks havoc on the world as drug cartels operate as dominating, murderous dictatorships. The powerful Irish Drug Cartel has set up drug manufacturing plants around the world and they will kill anyone who gets in their way. Sarah is an ambitious policewoman from an antiterrorist unit. She’s also smart, beautiful, and extremely good at her job, which is why she is assigned to an Interpol Incident Response Team in Manchester, set up to find and stop The Cartel.
Alongside colleagues from the United Kingdom’s SAS, she must quickly learn new Close Quarters Battle tactics and apply them to a vengeful and threatening battlefield. Sarah’s investigation appears to be going well until the fight turns personal. She must now struggle to save her friends, family, and even herself. Spanning the globe with a keen knowledge of special forces tactics and some genuinely shocking twists, this book warns of a bloody, drug-addled future we may soon face.
Let me explain this novel in British style BLOODY BRILLIANT!!
The story takes place in future in some 2025-26. One Indonesian policewoman, Sarah Dharmawan, is transferred temporarily in special forces/Interpol team to investigate and take down an Irish drug cartel. This cartel has managed to set up narcotics manufacturing in multiple places including Indonesia, Ireland and England. The drug cartel’s core consists of ex-soldiers from the British Army and they’ll do whatever they want in order to prevail. The readers certainly aren’t spared from the gory details. In fact the book opens with a scene where a member of the Drug Cartel is disemboweling a snatched female trooper from the secret police force.
Sarah is not only pretty but excellent in everything. From hand to hand combat to handling guns, from modeling to belly dance. She has been granted superhuman attributes by the author.
Cool plot. Totally action packed piece of a novel. However half of the regiment names went over my head but that won’t be problem as you immerse in the story.
The first and foremost reason to read this book. Sarah Dharmawan. She is actually from Densus -88, an antiterrorist organization that engages in super secret operations against terrorism. And the training they had to gone through is unbelievable. And she is a polyglot also able to pierce someone’s lungs with a pen. Singlehandedly she can kill 10 to 13 persons.
Her team members too are amazing especially Michael with whom she develops a relationship.
Language is ok. Easy enough to read.
Some descriptions of intimacy between Sarah and Michael were disturbing a little. Sometimes the flow of the story goes slow enough to make me bore. The language could have been a bit more engaging.
But overall a great experience. 4 stars well deserved.
Thanks so much for Jill Burkinshaw and the author for the opportunity to read and review this book.
