The Policewoman by Justin W.M. Roberts

The Policewoman - Justin W. M. Roberts

The Policewoman by Justin W.M. Roberts is an interesting book. I gave it four stars. Sara Dharmawan is an ambitious and attractive, police Inspector in an antiterrorist unit. Her father is Indonesian and her mother is half English and Spanish. She has an older brother, Tony, in the Indonesian Air Force and a little sister, Cindy, in secondary school.


English is basically Sarah's first language. However, she speaks Indonesian, Spanish, French, Dutch and German. Foreign language proficiency is a career booster in government service. When asked what she usually uses those languages for she replies: "Oh, I usually pray in Spanish, speak French to my boyfriend, curse in Dutch, and talk German to her German Shepherd." She can also speak fluent Arabic but doesn't share that talent, yet.


She's meeting with her Interpol commander, Christopher Broussard. "'That explains your accent then,' says Broussard, smiling.


People from West Country usually don't pronounce the letter 'h,' which is known as aitch-dropping. Broussard usually associates the West Country accent with farmers...or pirates. But he has to admit that it sounds nice coming from the stunningly beautiful Indonesian policewoman in front of him, even if it's ever so slightly unnatural."


Sarah is in a briefing with her new associates to earn about the Irish Drug Cartel. "Niall is their chief executioner. In the Cartel, he's in charge of the torture and murder of police, politicians, and civilians who get in their way"...


I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.
