'Thus began the Apocalypse of the book of Revelations.
'While holidaying at the beautiful Western Australian seaside city of Geraldton, US Ranger, Staff Sergeant Ben ‘Obi-Wan’ Kennedy, leads his group of special ops and their female friends through a series of dangerous adventures on their return to home base, Pine Gap Secret Intelligence Facility.
'The dedicated and self-sacrificing special ops individuals join a team of Western Australian Police who have arrested two Revelationist spies, but the terrorists want them back – dead or alive.
'Join the dedicated men and women who take their responsibilities seriously: to protect their friends, lovers and their community.
'Their escape takes them on a journey to assist a small country township infiltrated by terrorists – but in rescuing the community they burn down the local hotel, much to the locals distress; an outback farmer and his wife who’s hospitality helps seal the love between two wounded souls; a drug warlord who almost crushes the life of one of our heroes.
'Behind the tragedy and sorrow, leaders emerge. They carry their comrades until they are able to lift their burdens by themselves.
'A story of betrayal, subterfuge, friendship and love, against a background of survival in the rugged Australian desert.'
