I think it would be a nice read if the author worked on the dialogue. I'll give this a chance as it seems interesting.

Thanks for the elaborate review. It's sad the dialogues in the novel were lengthy and not easily graspable. As you have enjoyed reading this crime thriller, this could be a good read for lovers of crime and detective stories.

Thanks for the review. This book is dealing with human trafficking issue. It would be amazing to read the elimination of human trafficking racket. The description of Australia and Philippine, adds to the charm of the book because I love reading about the places.

After Reading the review about book , the thing I loved is that when initial investigation came to end , the story doesn't finishes like that , it keeps the reader engaged .
Now let's talk about dialogue , as official reviewer told that there are long explanation that people don't usually use , that Could make a reader a little boring . But the story seems to be amazing .

Now that I know that some scenes are in the Philippines and some of my countrymen are the victims, I have to read this! Go, Jamie and Jacko (and Sarah); get them bloody rascals!

A crime mystery novel involving child trafficking, criminal investigations, and adventures. From your review, it seems like a worthwhile book. Thanks.

Even this genre is not my preferred one, I would gladly read this book. Your review makes it such a worthy book to read. The only thing I am concerned about is that I might get bored if it has a weak dialogue. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about it tho.

After learning about a distress signal given by a fishing boat nearby, Jamie and Jacko set off to investigate. Much to their surprise, the boat is anything but a genuine fishing boat, and its cargo is a strange one too. When bodies of children are found floating around the boat, and an alive, terrified child is found hidden on the lower deck....
You can sense the heart beat so far. The description is vivid. Thanks for this review about some adventures in Australia

I'm so excited about how the author has developed this second story. Indeed creativity is at work here. I see the first and this review as very entertaining and informational. Many thanks to Greg for such an awesome piece.

I wasn't sure this would be for me (I like historical fiction, but not WWII so much) but your description of the investigation piqued my curiosity. It's a shame about the dialog, but maybe I'll give this a try. Thanks for a great review :)

This book sounds interesting. I like how it’s a crime mystery and an adventure story in Australia. I’m happy to hear the characters were well developed and engaging. It’s too bad about the dialogue being off and not really fitting the book. Thanks for your review.
