Conflict on the Yangtze by Greg Kater is a historical novel featuring compelling characters already introduced in the series. Jamie Munro and Jack O'Brian are operatives working for the Commonwealth Investigative Office in Darwin and now they are sent on a mission to investigate the murder of one of their own. Going through Manila to enter Shanghai, what awaits them is mayhem, a world where men survive through force and cunning. They are embroiled in a world where gangs compete for notoriety, but most importantly, they must deal with a ruthless cartel. Can they navigate this dangerous environment and unearth the truth or will they sink this time?
The narrative is done in a strong and enticing voice. It features compelling characters and after reading the previous books in this series, I was looking forward for the author to up the game. As usual, he never disappointed. Character development is top notch. While the characters have to navigate through tough and dangerous situations, they still manage to keep the humor - at times grim - and readers will enjoy the connection between the two lead characters. The narrative is littered with historical references, allowing readers a powerful feel of China during the Second World War. The book is filled with action and moments that are exhilarating. Greg Kater is a great storyteller with economy of word, a unique phraseology and the ability to craft beautiful and engaging dialogues. This book is fast paced and filled with entertainment.
