Fantastic read. Loved Russel Carter’s dry humour and his “Bond like” ability to remain cool under pressure. All the characters really jumped off the page, the action was relentless and the philosophy of the book, both from the Australian and Indonesian perspectives, really had me engaged from beginning to end.
The settings are varied and exotic and the action scenes set in and around the water were really fresh and exciting. For me, the water itself felt like a great ominous character. Suffocating and exhilarating all at the same time.
