AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the middle of the beautiful harbour of Sydney, on the eve of the biggest public live music party on the city's calendar, a body is discovered ravaged by an mysterious contagion and Chief Medical Examiner JIM immediately appeals for quarantine. But the party's too important to the city's coffers and Jim's fears spiral out of control when he learns that his children ELMO and NINA are both at the event. With the help of government spook HIRSCH, Jim takes the law into his own hands and closes off all access to the event. But instead of controlling the situation, a riot erupts that throws the entire city into bedlam. With the world collapsing around him, Jim discovers that not only has his wife DENNY infiltrated the deadly pandemonium to find their children, but the virus is no accident, and the people responsible for it are the last he'd ever suspect...'
