Book Information: A force to be reckoned with
While world leaders and faceless power brokers remote-control wars on a global scale, their political big-pictures translate to personal tragedy for those on the other end of the shock and awe of surgical strikes, rolling tanks and interminable detention.
And as western governments manipulate their War on Terror to stay in power, individuals the world over respond in different ways to the fear being generated; depending on whether they’re fearful of the message, or the messenger.
Being alert rather than alarmed is good advice, until people begin to wonder who they should be watching and whether they’ve been had.
Brief Bio: Lindy never grew up to be the famous scientist she’d always dreamt of being. Instead she spent time as a journalist, a traveller and a book editor before turning happily to a life of crime. She is now the author of five crime, mystery and adventure novels.
Lindy is an unashamed Xenite, Xenaphile, XWP buff – you get the drift; a Buffy, Angel, Stargate, Dr Who, Torchwood, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica fan; a Trekker; a closet warrior princess; and a philogynist, who obviously doesn’t mind being labelled. She is also a National Co-Convenor of Sisters in Crime Australia and editor of its magazine Stiletto.
