Australian Federal Police officer Brad Chen is having a bad time. Recently injured in a hit and run attack, he’s having to lean on crutches and painkillers. The Federal Immigration Minister, Tracey Dale, is having an even worse time. She’s been found brutally murdered in her Canberra flat.

Together with his chauffeur, Kate Malone, Chen travels from Canberra to Sydney and Melbourne investigating the murder and interrogating a series of ex-lovers, estranged friends, collegues and neo-nazis, having the crap beaten out of him by skinheads and mysterious assassins along the way.
