Author of Caged & Brothers

About: 

In short, I'm a writer who's trying to make her own way. Happily married to a wonderfully supportive husband, I read and write to my heart's content.

My first book Chronicles of the Fallen: Rebellion is the first of the trilogy. Coming up: Rebirth.

Brothers is the first stroll I took into the crime fiction genre.

The day Adrian chooses to make a quick stop at the bank is suppose to be an ordinary day before he picks up Adelia, his daughter, who spends the weekend at his sister's house.

However, the mundane routine which should've ended with him meeting his daughter and get together to spend the last week of her school holiday suddenly takes a sharp turn down the hill when a man steps in his path on the way to the bank, and corners him in an alley. Adrian has no choice to kill him, and that is where his nightmare begin.

Things take a weirder turn when, instead of cops, several people in black, obviously trained, knock his door. They seize him without warning, blindfold him in front of his daughter, and toss him into an isolated jail cell without a fair trial, much less a chance to call an attorney.

If that's not peculiar in itself, he gets six more jailmates, each with different background but none with clear reasons as to their imprisonment.

In that dark, dank cell with practically no humane treatment, Adrian has to survive and find a way out to get home to his daughter.

But the question remains, who puts the seven of them in the cage, and why?

It is 2060, and Jakarta is in utter chaos. Two largest gangs have been involved in open war in the last four years, at the expense of the Capital, and the authorities can barely stop them.

Andrew and Daniel Jatmiko, the leaders of Sky Claw, are battling the Dragons with their limited resources, but when Andrew gets stabbed in the front of the crowd and faces imminent death, Daniel has no option but to call their youngest brother, Ray, who's never been in good terms with them both.

Ray, a former soldier turned private investigator to uncover the truth behind the conspiracy that claims his best friend's life, has no interest in aiding his brothers who choose the underworld than to live normal lives, not even when Danny asks for his help and that Andy's life is on the edge of the knife.

Thinking that the gang war is just a stupid stuff his brothers choose to involve in, Ray is in for a sore surprise when he uncovers that there are people with insidious motives lurking behind it, secretly leading the march towards the Capital's fast decimation for the sake of their own profit.

Will Ray help his brothers and finally make peace with them? Or will he just focus on cracking the truth that took his friend's life and be damned with his brothers?
