A high-stakes trilogy condensed into one fast-paced thriller and the inspiration behind the global smash-hit TV Drama Secret City. When seasoned journalist Harry Dunkley is slipped a compromising photograph of a federal MP one frosty Canberra morning, he knows he is onto something big. But the deeper Harry investigates, the more he realises that this photograph is merely the hint of a larger conspiracy at work, and a secret its guardians are willing to kill to protect. In this riveting trilogy, the national capital becomes a battleground as Australia is snared in a dangerous dance with superpowers America and China, and war looms ever closer. "House of Cards, Canberra style....Political insiders Steve Lewis and Chris Uhlmann bring biting wit and behind-the-headlines insight to this sharply observed novel." SUNDAY CANBERRA TIMESShow more
From the winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel 1961, Philadelphia. After having to betray his brother to save his own life, hitman Blake Saunders flees the Mob and seeks refuge on the other side of the world. Though the ghosts of the past still haunt him, the tiny Australian town of Coral Shoals is paradise. Blake surfs, plays guitar and runs his own bar, the Surf Shack. But then the body of a young woman is found at a local motel , and evidence links her to the Surf Shack. It soon becomes clear to Blake - who knows a thing or two about murder - that the only way for him to protect paradise is to find the killer. "Part Goodfellas and part love letter to Australian coastal towns, this wonderfully imagined crime novel is like riding the perfect wave."
