This is an interesting idea, considering the 'age of terror' which we're currently living in. Gina Davies, also known as 'the Doll' and 'Krystal' is a pole dancer in Sydney who is saving her money to go to university and have a career which she can be proud of. The night after she has a one night stand with a stranger she sees a photograph of herself and the stranger on a news report, linking them to unexploded bombs found at Homebush stadium. Her reluctance to go straight to the police proves to be her downfall as Sydney is put on high terror alert and the search for 'the unknown terrorist,' as she is dubbed, intensifies. The media paints an inaccurate picture of her, which only adds to the public's paranoia. Once this book really kicked into gear, after about 100 pages or so, I found it hard to put down. It was entertaining and fast paced, but not so much that it skimped on important details. The writer clearly had a political agenda, dedicating the book to David Hicks who has proven to not be as innocent as the Doll. He also criticises the ASIO Act directly, by including an arrogant ASIO officer who boasts about what the amendments to the Act allow him to do. I thought that this could have been done more subtly. It seemed to break the momentum of the book to throw in a two dimensional character who only exists to slam the amendments. Its obvious that the purpose of this book is to scare the public into believing that this could happen to them under the ASIO Act, and while I disagree with the author's claims, I still found this to be very entertaining and well written as a work of fiction. I'm curious about reading Flanagan's other books now.
