Carey, Peter  
When Gaby Baillieux released the Angel Worm virus into Australia's prison system, hundreds of asylum seekers walked free. And because the US runs the prisons - as they do so many parts of her country - the doors of several thousand jails in the US also opened. Was this a mistake, or a declaration of cyber war? What, if anything, does it have to do with the largely forgotten Battle of Brisbane between US and Australian forces in 1942? Or with the CIA-influenced coup in Australia in 1975? Journalist Felix Moore is determined to write Gaby's biography in order to find the answers, to save her, to save his career, and perhaps to save his country. But how to get Gaby to cooperate?
