The Politics of Murder
A sanctioned murder and all hell breaks loose!
The Politics of Murder is a story of the greed inherent in man and his disregard for the consequences. While scientists developed the nuclear fuel, they failed to produce a safe waste storage system.
When a clandestine facility is built in Western Australia, an equally secret mercenary force is set up without the knowledge of the Government.
Dan Brennan and Mac McLean are back again in this exciting yet challenging thriller of thrillers. Instead of a simple case of murder, the two detectives find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy that extends up the line of command to the very top. When an assassination team is sent to execute them, it can only mean one thing… the Prime Minister himself has betrayed them.
