Jamie and Jacko are currently heading the Darwin office of the Commonwealth Investigation Service(CIS). They are assigned the jobs after successfully dismantling the German soldier criminal gangs that terrorized the horn of Africa. The spotlight still focuses on the two friends; Jamie Munro and Jack ‘O’ Brien. This story takes a new turn of events as they once again track down agents of evil conspiring against humanity.
Jamie and Jacko intercept a distress call from a ‘fishing’ vessel out at sea. On responding, they encounter a deceased child floating on water. Further inspection of the vessel results in the discovery of an Asian child under the ship’s bow. This marks the discovery and tracking down of a child trafficking syndicate. It is a well-coordinated criminal organization with tentacles in Australia, the United States and the South Eastern parts of Asia. Will Jamie and Jacko bring the pedophile ring of criminals to book this time?
I like so many aspects of this adventurous thriller. To begin with, Greg Kater interestingly utilizes tracking skills exhibited by Jacko; a half Warramunga to create an intriguing plot and storyline. He also borrows and more considerably develops characters like Sarah from The Warramunga’s War. She likewise shines in this captivating story. Thirdly, in his narration, he exhibits absolute command of the setting and culture of the Philippines content while treading carefully on the sensitive child trafficking subject. He also showcases the chronological order of events leading to orphaned children that later fall prey to child traffickers. This results in an educative read. Moreover, I like the theme of romance between Jamie Munro and his fiancée Carna. This offers a break to the reader in the breath-taking chase of the criminals. Lastly, the most beautiful aspect of this novel is it is independent and can stand on its own despite being the second book in the sequel.
This story is expertly edited. I merely came across a few typo grammatical errors that I did not find to be a hindrance while reading. Overly, there is nothing that I did not like hence I enjoyed reading to the concluding chapter.
I rate The Warramunga’s Aftermath of War 4 out of 4 stars. This precise, adventurous tale greatly explores a better insight of the post-world war II events. The Warramunga's Aftermath of War is a shocking and mysterious story with many twists and turns that you will enjoy reading. This is the reason I will not rate it any lower. I highly recommend this tale to avid readers of action-packed crime thriller tales and most specificall the young adults.
