Books
A mile-a-minute, racy, labyrinthine novel that reads like it's come straight out of tomorrow's headlines, this debut commercial thriller by political commentator Bernard Keane has it all. It tells what happens when one of Australia's big three IT companies hacks into a government account and places information there that causes huge panic and sends that department's minister straight to the IT company to sort it out and makes sure it never happens again. The perfect result for Veldtech Industries, but of course things start to go wrong, and the stakes are so high there's no going back. A gripping, sexy thriller about the price we pay for being kept 'safe' and the lengths companies - and governments - will go to hide the truth. An unsettling and hugely entertaining glimpse into the very near future from a fearless commentator who knows where the bodies are buried!
