'This book raises the provocative question: Are we in danger of becoming a morally bankrupt people "who have had it too easy for too long?"
In the context of a continuing international "war against terror" and other ideological or military conflicts, a global economic crisis and volatile politics, the novel takes us to celebrations of our National Day in a Brisbane surburban backyard, surrounded by the deadly waste and wreckage of Queensland's recent floods. This year's Australia Day party is destined to end in tragedy.'
