Four very different investigators, an attractive FBI special agent, an underworld police inspector, a Special Air Services anti-terrorist sergeant and a tabloid journalist are all frustrated when their own investigations into horrendous crimes are stymied by betrayal and duplicity. Unlikely collaborators from vastly different investigative worlds are drawn to each other by cryptic clues, finding that their new, apprehensive counterparts hold essential parts to a puzzle that they desperately need. What seemed so illogical beforehand now has purpose and there is the realisation that each of their investigations yields a much sought after part of a jigsaw that can only make sense if all the pieces are put together. Collectively they make progress, but knowing what the elusive pieces of the puzzle mean is as difficult as finding the pieces. The investigators are all drawn to imminent danger in a steamy, tropical rainforest, following the spore of an insidious conspiracy driven by some of the most powerful people in the country. Not all investigators will survive the hunt for a brutal juggernaut that eliminates any perceived threat with impunity. With knowledge comes power and the investigative team gain enough knowledge to seek out the coterie’s Achilles’ heel.
Because of him, they are coming…

Following the kidnapping of the client’s senior designer by terrorists during a business trip to Israel, Jake and his team have to work with the Israeli Mossad to go in and rescue him, not realizing that this was only the beginning of a sinister terrorist plot that could bring the US Government to its knees.
Back in the US, as the evil plot enfolds, Jake and his team have to race against the clock to desperately try to avert the apparently unstoppable, world-shattering event that is about to engulf the most powerful nation on Earth.
But then her babies arrive and the husband she adores turns into a cold and angry stranger. Her perfect world is shattered the first night he hits her.
Now, she’s trapped in a violent marriage with nowhere to turn. Her husband has threatened to kill her and the kids if she ever dares to leave. In public, they’re the perfect couple, but inside, she’s slowly but surely dying.
Mason Alexander has relocated to the city to take up his dream job as a pediatric doctor at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Recovering from a failed marriage, he’s determined to put the change of scene to good use. The distractions and demands of his new job are just what he needs to get his life back on track.
Then he runs into Isobel Donnelly and his world is once again turned upside down. He’s loved her since they were children. She’s the reason his marriage failed. But Isobel’s still married to his nemesis: the incomparable Nigel Donnelly. From all accounts, the two of them are still blissfully in love.
Vowing to steer clear of the woman who’s haunted his dreams for far too many years, Mason does his best to avoid her, but Isobel continues to seek him out and he can’t help but notice her assurances about her happy marriage appear a little forced.
When she arrives at work with a blackened eye, he’s immediately suspicious: There’s no way she fell over toys left in the way.
The thought that Nigel might be abusing her is abhorrent, but the signs are there for all to see. Will Mason be able to convince her to leave her husband…or will they both die trying?
