Jakarta Shadows
This is a thought-provoking and gripping thriller set mainly in Jakarta, with a side trip to Bali.Graham Young, a disenchanted ex-pat, has a drink with a sleazy stranger in a bar and gets caught up in an investigation into a series of sex killings.Set against a background of all-pervasive corruption and political and religious turmoil, the book has echoes of Graham Greene - post-colonial angst, culture clash, the search for moral redemption. But it's also a chilling read: the author ratchets up the sense of menace as even peaceful Bali provides no refuge from the mysterious forces closing in on Young.Stylish and atmospheric, soaked in steamy tropical heat, this novel will give you a better insight into what goes on under the surface in Indonesia than any guidebook.
