For those of you who have read book 1 I have good news: Book two is progressing nicely.
Of course the story focusses on the quest for the hidden gold. But it deals with the bloody aftermath of World War Two, the Indonesian struggle for independence and the turmoil in South-East Asia in the 1950’s and 1960’s. It takes the leading characters to places like Yogyakarta, Bangkok and Singapore, with lots of action scenes involving smuggling, political intrigues and flying Consolidated Catalina’s as well as other memorable aircraft from that period.
I have added much ‘couleur locale’ such as describing action taking place on ‘Pasar Senen’ in downtown Batavia (Jakarta)
