FROM THE WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014 Gina Davies is a 26-year-old pole dancer in Sydney. She's a flawed woman, racist and obsessed with money, who knows her role in a world built on deception: the dancers pretend to be excited, the men pretend that the women aren't pretending. But on the night after three unexploded bombs are discovered at a local stadium, Gina has a one-night stand with an attractive stranger. The next day, she has become a prime suspect in the investigation of an attempted terrorist attack. Now a wanted person, Davies witnesses every truth of her life twisted into a betrayal as she endures trial by an increasingly hysterical media. Suddenly, Gina's world of small, familiar deceptions has imploded into one where lies are out to destroy her.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A tightly riveted, almost classic thriller. The narrative pace is fast, the characters deftly honed... This is a damn good story delivered with the glittering prose that only the rage of just moral anger can achieve. -- Rachel Holmes * The Times *
A thriller of genuine importance... fired by passionate concern. -- Toby Clements * Daily Telegraph *
A searing depiction of how bigotry feasts on rumour and prejudice... To have achieved this feat inside a razor-sharp narrative, with humour and a keen eye for the ironies of politics... is nothing short of brilliance. -- James Wood * Scotland on Sunday *
Funny, filmic and gripping. -- Sophie Ratcliffe * Daily Mail *
As accessible and timely as they come - an intense and thoughtful thriller set in a paranoid Sydney ablaze with terrorism fever. -- Jonathan Gibbs * Metro *
A terrific novel, maintained at fever heat. -- James Buchan * Guardian *
It grips from the very first page and forces you to read on to its explosive, tragic climax... This is a carefully patterned novel, full of surprises, that paints a devastating picture of the world today. It may be set on the other side of the planet but the punches it packs hit home - hard. -- Mark Sanderson * Sunday Telegraph *
Read this novel now, before it's too late for any of us to understand its message. * James Wood, Scotland on Sunday *
