Overview

It's 2042 and a foreign power controls Australia. Mind reading robotic security guards monitor every move and thought. They patrol the streets, the farms and the university halls, and people who step out of line are eliminated or cut up for body parts. On the surface everything runs like clockwork, but the people are suffering. Factory workers are fed drugs to keep them passive, people on the land are evicted for foreign take overs and individual thought or spiritual belief is prohibited. But there is an underground resistance. It comes from the bush.
Harry, an acutely sensitive young autistic boy, who can read minds himself, is horrified when the 'Wasps' try to recruit him. Tanja, beautiful, abused and alone, who must try to build a life for herself and her unborn daughter. Jodie, a gun toting girl from a cattle station, who joined a revolution in Africa before returning to Australia. Johnno and Moe, gifted students who meet Harry at a Sydney university. As their stories evolve and their lives cross paths, they must join forces to outwit the far-reaching tentacles of technology and the ruthless police state to survive.

About the Author

Tracey Adhikari grew up in outback Australia, and spent several years as a jillaroo (cowgirl) before entering journalism. As a journalist-photographer she covered civil war in El Salvador, where she learnt to speak passable Spanish and dodge bullets, and later covered civil unrest in SE Asia. Then, looking for new direction, she retrained as a civil engineer and spent ten years on construction sites and in design offices. Tracey has since completed a Masters of International Law and now works for a charity, writing in her spare time.
