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 Times)

Great political thriller
Thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly engaging - a fascinating story about Australian and US/Chinese ambition and intrigue with an interesting 'tour' of Aussie politics and process like most fiction some of the coincidences stretched credulity a little but still a great tale.
