In the middle of the desert a stolen 4WD collides with a transport truck. The two Aboriginal kids in the car are hurt. Badly. Someone should have called for help. But they didn't. They didn't because that 'someone' works for a major stakeholder in a research project no-one talks about.

Ned Banks has spent the last ten years juggling a stalling career as an on-line journalist with the care of his talented but troubled brother, Jesse. When Alex Wisham, the teacher of the kids involved in the accident, tells him she has phone footage of the crash, Ned thinks his big break has finally come. With Jesse's help, Ned is able to clean up the video. Its contents are shocking, and the decision to publish will light the wick on a story too explosive to be contained.

As Ned Banks plane touches down in the remotest corner of the state, he has no idea that his brother is being held for questioning by one of the most powerful arms of the law in the country. The Cyber Crime Unit, headed by Malcolm Coover, has been tracking Jesse's on-line activities with increasing concern. They want to know why Jesse was hacking into a highly classified research facility, they want to know what files he copied and whether he's working for someone else.
