The Policewoman - CoverBook Description

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.


My Review

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

This is not my usual type of book but I like to read books that are a little out of my comfort zone occasionally and this is certainly different to anything I have ever read before, and I mean that in a good way.  I cannot imagine how you start writing something like this the work and research that must have gone into it must be astronomical.  There is immense detail in the strategies that make up the book, and include in that the knowledge of all the agencies involved, my mind boggles just thinking about it.

The book is set 10 years in the future with William being King of England.  A drug cartel is taking over internationally. Military and law enforcement agencies work together to take them down.  Sarah is an Indonesian Policewoman but her role is very different to a UK Policewoman as she is more military than law enforcement she is extremely fit and has numerous skills that the UK need so she is seconded to a special task force.  Michael is SAS but also has special skills.  The two work together (and play together).  They are frequently found to be in the middle of the action as the reader is witness to the action and violence that drive the Cartel’s.  Violence, romance, friendships , corruption, heartbreak it is all in there:  throw a psychopathic killer, that  disembowels women and beats men to death with a board of nails, into the mix and you can be sure you are in for one hell of a ride.  There are many twists and turns and several curve balls that add to the adrenaline pumping suspense.  This is a totally gripping read that is scarily realistic.

It is a little slow going for the first 5 chapters, as we get to know the characters and their history, but from there onwards the pace increases steadily until I was turning page after page well into the night.

A mind blowing read and I thank Justin very much for gifting me the book.
