The Book

In this thriller, the reader follows the fortunes of Australian ASIO agent Kate Austin. We find Kate has already led allied intelligence agencies to discover a well-established listening post to the key US intelligence gathering facility of Pine Gap in Central Australia. Australian authorities have in custody the head of a massive global electronics giant, Kronberg, the supplier of much of the computer equipment to governments around the world. The man in custody is Joseph Homberg. Austin has also uncovered half a century of archives, the records of two assassins that have been employed by Homberg and his family. These diaries are the key to understanding the current series of violent events. The diaries suggest European old money is at the heart of generational political corruption and a complete breakdown of global cyber security. Austin’s search for the hidden hand behind it all entwines with real events related to the birth of computing and the internet itself. In Beyond the Bridge, Kate pushes ahead but is caught in the kickback by the corrupt as she unravels a conspiracy that rivals no other. The story overlaps and follows on from the first novel of the three-part series “The Bridge at Koondrook.”
