A story of power and corruption, love and betrayal—and moral redemption
Prepare to be initiated into the dirty, seamy side of politics. A world where no one is a friend, where the only people you can really trust are your enemies; where beliefs you take for granted are turned on their heads.
“BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR...”
As “The Power Behind the Throne” of Australia’s next Prime Minister, Alison McGuire is just one step from the pinnacle of power and the achievement of her every dream—when she’s ensnared in a web of political intrigue and corruption.
Her adversary: the powerful, Machiavellian Senator Frank McKurn—who plans to use her for his own twisted ends.
In a frantic race for survival, she must dig up a knockout blow to demolish McKurn before he destroys her.
But McKurn holds all the cards. And crossing him is an invitation to wear concrete boots.
In desperation, Alison seeks the support of an acerbic-tongued newspaper columnist—who ends up in hospital in a coma. A police sergeant asks too many pointed questions—and is “reassigned.” A politician with a heart of gold—who shows his true nature when push comes to shove. A secretive computer hacker who digs up priceless information on McKurn’s web of corruption—and is forced into hiding to save his life.
Who else can she trust?
Certainly not Derek Olsson, her former lover, the man who betrayed her, now her bitter antagonist—who’s nowhere to be found.
Derek Olsson is on the run. Wanted by the police—for a murder he claims is the perfect frame-up ...by a Triad king who has offered a reward for his head—without the body...by a powerful politician who must shut his mouth permanently—or spend the rest of his life in jail.
Little do Alison and Derek know that only by joining forces do they have a chance to survive
But Alison must first swallow her anger and bury the hatchet—except their time is running out.
A shadowy contract hit man is now hot on their trail.
Known only as “The Assassin,” he has yet to fail.
Trust Your Enemies weaves the contentious issues of religion, abortion, terrorism and drugs into a spine-tingling drama and heart-throbbing romance with something to inspire (and offend) everyone.
A parable for our time that plumbs depths of moral depravity and soars to the pinnacle of human achievement.
