AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Book three of a high-octane thriller series. Dom has four more Herculean tasks to perform...or lose a pound of flesh. In this instalment he has to find a valuable and mysterious piece of technology.

Dom should be concentrating on training for his big race and a possible spot on the Australian team to compete at the World Youth Games. But the powerful, shadowy organisation, The Debt, has other ideas. And as Dom knows: you don't mess with The Debt.

The Debt has handed down the next task to repay Dom's ancient family debt, and it's seemingly impossible! Procure a Cerberus. Rumoured to be still in development, Cerberus is an innovative piece of next-generation technology, only whispered about in the furthest reaches of cyberspace. Drawn into the shady world of black-hat hacking and industrial espionage, Dom will need every skill he's learnt, and acquire some more, to complete this instalment. How do you steal something that doesn't exist? This time will he fail and lose a pound of flesh?' (Publisher's blurb)

Works about this Work

Friday Essay: Feminist Medusas and Outback Minotaurs – Why Myth Is Big in Children’s Books Elizabeth Hale , 2016 single work column
— Appears in: The Conversation , 3 June 2016;

'... Monsters from classical myth have been lurking in the gullies of Western literature for a long time – in retellings and adaptations, and acting as symbols and metaphors for aspects of the human experience.'

'They’ve been surfacing recently in fantasy for children and young adults. Imaginary Medusas, realistically drawn Minotaurs, as well as a multitude of many-headed Scyllas, Hydras and Cerberuses: they all appear in Australian children’s and YA fiction. ...'
