What the critics are saying about Kerry B. Collison's novels:
Cresecent Moon Rising by Kerry B. Collison - At a time when Australians are wavering in support of a proposed U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, more than six hundred U.S. Marines rotating on R & R in Bali are withdrawn from the island; then, Kuta erupts in a fireball and Australia falls into line with the American’s demand to become part of the ‘Coalition of the Willing’.
Based on indisputable fact, a step by step account of the Bali bombers, the rise of extremist Islamic militancy across Asia and how Melbourne is selected as a target by al-Qaeda. Read more!
|Indonesian Gold The inspiration for this novel was based on events surrounding the infamous, billion-dollar BRE-X gold fraud, and the determined few who recklessly destroyed so many lives and severely impacted on local cultures with their all-consuming quest for gold, in Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.|
Merdeka Square (Released in North America as Freedom Square) “Tense, intelligent and gripping. Merdeka Square presents a rich portrayal of the terrifying crisis which brought President Soeharto to power, and explores an exotic shadowy world, mixing undoubted fact and exciting fiction in an intoxicating form.”
The Timor Man is an absorbing thriller, provides a controversial perspective on events in Indonesia, and takes the reader through the brutal invasion of East Timor. The book gives an insider's view of the execution of foreign journalists and builds to a chilling finale, set in the present day.
Jakarta Indonesia post-Soeharto: the new military government hits overdrive with ambitious plans to construct state of the art nuclear power stations in Bali and Java. 'Jakarta' completes the trilogy series by taking us into the dangerous and corrupt world of high finance and global politics.
The Fifth Season Many readers no doubt will be disturbed, perhaps even incredulous at the novel's portrayal of the events surrounding Ten Days In May, 1998, when American-trained, Indonesian Special Forces shot and killed students on Jakarta's streets, and more than one thousand citizens lost their lives.
