AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Book two of a high-octane thriller series. Dom has five more Herculean tasks to perform...or lose a pound of flesh. In this instalment Dom has to turn the power off during Earth Hour--for the entire Gold Coast.

Once upon a time, and not so long ago, I didn't have to do this stuff: feign complete surprise, tell endless lies. But now, ever since The Debt, it seems like that's all I do.

With Tristan in hospital and Imogen increasingly suspicious of Dom's behaviour, Dom has had it with The Debt. But this mysterious organisation hasn't finished with Dom. No matter how hard he runs, The Debt is not far behind.

Dom must turn off all of the Gold Coast's lights during Earth Hour. But Dom is learning quickly. He has the ClamTop and a few tricks of his own, and starts plotting how to get into Diabolo Bay Power Station. Dom's not been tested in this way before, but his brush with The Debt has given this task an urgency he's not faced before. And he's starting to realise that this organisation means business. He's not just racing against time, he's racing for his life.' (Publisher's blurb)
