The Mandarin Code – Harry Dunkley 2
By Steve Lewis & Chris Uhlmann
Great read, especially as it’s set in a rather familiar landscape… Although I have to admit I did spend three quarters of the book trying to figure out who was who, and probably didn’t give the story the attention it deserved.
Politics just got deadly. The second darkly satirical thriller from the authors of THE MARMALADE FILES.
A body pulled from the murky waters of Lake Burley Griffin links Canberra, Beijing and Washington in a titanic struggle where war is just a mouse click away.
Veteran reporter Harry Dunkley is chasing the scoop of his career, hunting for his best friend’s killer. Navigating treacherous political waters where a desperate minority government edges ever closer to disaster, he delves into a cyber world where there are no secrets.
Friendship and loyalty give way to betrayal and revenge as Dunkley stumbles into the sights of the mandarins who wield real power – and who’ll stop at nothing to retain it.
Political insiders Steve Lewis and Chris Uhlmann bring biting wit and behind-the-headlines insights to this sharply observed sequel to the bestselling THE MARMALADE FILES, once again lifting the veil on the lust and lies that stain the corridors of power.
