'When the world faces a deadly threat from a lost weapon, Lachlan Fox, disillusioned ex-Navy operative, is forced back into action. Lachlan Fox has made a career out of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Having been discharged from the Navy, Fox tries to enjoy the quiet life, but during a visit from his best friend Alister Gammaldi, Fox's life is thrown out of balance. On a diving trip off Christmas Island the pair recover an obviously military but unidentifiable pod from the sea floor of the Indian Ocean - setting in motion a chain of events that will drag them both into the corrupt world of international politics and arms races.

y Patriot Act James Phelan , Sydney : Hachette Livre Australia , 2007 Z1409592 2007 single work novel crime 'Ex-Navy operative Lachlan Fox is now working as an investigative journalist. When a number of European power-brokers are killed he starts to suspect something very big is going on. His instincts are right. Since the forming of the UKUSA (pronounced U-KU-ZA) Treaty in 1948, the five member countries (USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) have developed ever-capable electronic Signals Intelligence services. Put simply, their intelligence agencies currently have the capability to intercept every spoken or written word that travels via telephone, fax, email, radio, microwave, satellite, fibre-optic transmission, etc. in the world.France has been vocal in their opposition - but the truth is, they want in. While military and terrorist communications are targeted, Echelon (the main UKUSA program) spends most of its time and resources targeting political and economic assets around the globe. This information is disseminated to US companies via The Advocacy Centre, set up by the Clinton Administration in 1993, and that year alone added $35B to the US economy through export gains. Lachlan Fox suspects that Echelon is under threat. He is the right man in the wrong place.' (Publisher's blurb)

y Red Ice James Phelan , Sydney : Hachette Livre Australia , 2010 Z1722805 2010 single work novel thriller 'Just a few days after the conclusion of Liquid Gold, Lachlan Fox is thrown back into the midst of the action when the dangerous and powerful Umbra organization offers to trade a man they've taken hostage for one of their own operatives. After the CIA claim they won't negotiate with terrorists, Umbra begins to cut off the natural gas supply to Europe. This is just a small indication of the level of chaos they're prepared to inflict. Assassinations follow . . . Red Ice is a post-cold war thriller set in an unstable Europe, where control of resources equals true power. It's a novel in which Russia is under the influence of corrupt capitalists, the pace is non-stop, the stakes are inconceivably high, the villain a true megalomaniac - and ex-Navy hero Lachlan Fox is seriously challenged.' (From the publisher's website.)
