An extraordinary achievement, The Unknown Terrorist is chilling, impossible to put down, and all too familiar. What would you do if you turned on the television and saw you were the most wanted terrorist in Australia? Gina Davies is about to find out. From the author of the international bestsellers The Sound of One Hand Clapping and Gould's Book of Fish comes a fast-paced thriller that paints a devastating picture of contemporary Australia.

Depressing

This story was about as entertaining and uplifting as reading a newspaper, full of tragedy and hysteria. It is a book for our times and examines the awful effect that the threat of terrorism can have on the general populace and the vulnerability of sex workers. No happy endings here.

Great book, but the reading?

This is great book, but the reading lets it down. The characters are sadly ruined by the reading.
