Rockefeller and the demise of ibu pertiwi

Featured Release

Historical Fiction

In 1961, and one month following the disappearance of Michael C. Rockefeller off the southern coast of what was then known as Dutch Western New Guinea, Indonesia invaded and annexed the territory and commenced the systematic slaughter of indigenous Papuans, to pave the way for a massive wave of transmigrated Javanese.
With the meteoric rise of the new powerhouses, China and India, Indonesian-occupied West Papua's wealth of oil, gas and minerals precipitates an international power-play for control over the vast natural resources.
Decades have passed since the twenty-three year old Rockefeller disappeared — long presumed dead, when sightings of the heir are widely reported.
Demands for West Papuan independence gain momentum and Australia is again drawn into military conflict with the Indonesian Motherland, Ibu Pertiwi.

Sample text:

Umar Suharjo raised the Soviet SVD high-powered sniper rifle and nestled the weapon against his cheek. The assassin peered through the PSO-1 scope to view the scene below, where an advance patrol of KOPASSUS Special Forces paratroopers had occupied the isolated highland village. Suharjo’s eyes traversed the scene narrowing when his attention focused on a group of high-spirited soldiers gathered around something on the ground. Closer scrutiny revealed the object of their undivided attention to be a woman. A sneer curled Suharjo’s upper lip when it became apparent that the victim was white.
