Tense, intelligent and gripping, Merdeka Square presents a rich portrayal of the terrifying crisis which brought the present political leadership of Indonesia to power. Murray Stephenson, an official at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in 1965, is drawn into the turmoil of the last days of the Sukarno Government. Is he merely an observer, or is he working underground for ASIS, the Australian Secret Service, or for the CIA? Was "the coup" the work of the communists, Sukarno's own sympathisers, or the Diponegoro Regiment? What was the role of the Gerwani women, and how significant is Murray's entanglement with the beautiful Ade? 'Merdeka Square' explores an exotic, shadowy world, mixing undoubted fact and exciting fiction in an intoxicating form that will fascinate readers both Asian and European.
