This is the 16th in the series with the NSW Police Force Murder Squad Detectives Joseph Lind and Marjory Hendricks as the main characters.
Democracies around the world have invested large sums of money and personnel in their fight against “home grown” terrorism.
Since the commencement of the Syrian conflict and the emergence of the brutal and inhumane ISIL movement, this investment has increased exponentially.
Australia with arguably a greater number per capita base of fanatical Muslim fighters going into this part of the world has recently introduced new laws and increased funding for Anti-terrorist/counter-terrorist measures to be instigated against these “home-grown” fanatics.
Unexplained deaths and disappearances across the nation have severely diminished the surveillance subject 'base' of suspected home-grown Terrorists that cannot be denied or ignored.
Would these Commonwealth Organisations 'blow the whistle' on detecting this significant decrease in the number of surveillance subjects under their control? Would the Government be the very ones to implement a covert operation to reduce these numbers of 'suspects' thus saving Millions of Taxpayers money? And would they ever confess to such a regime ever being in place? And would those high ranking Officials ever be bought to justice regardless of the benefits that an economic solution of this magnitude be introduced?
The Murder Team of Lind and Hendricks of the NSW Police Force are allotted three murders that appear to be totally unrelated.
If this is the case, why are several Commonwealth Counter-Terrorist Organisations scrambling over themselves attempting to take control of these murders?
