A journalist's world shaking scoop. A billionaire's secret bounty on his head. This reporter with a gun is about to need it...
Gar Hart's obsession with uncovering big lies has always made his kids feel second. So when a Sydney billionaire's son suspiciously goes to prison for stealing money before mutilating his own lips, Hart doesn't buy the PR line about mental illness, and digs deeper. Now witnesses are turning up dead around the globe - and Hart's own children are in the crosshairs of a dark enemy.
With the help of his whip-smart but inexperienced protégé, Claire Styler, Hart must crack open a sinister underworld of the ultra-rich while protecting the ones he loves. Slipping from Sydney to London to Shanghai trying to outplay shadowy pursuers, the journalist realizes that exposing a grand conspiracy of business and political titans will take both a pen and a gun...
Can Hart break his greatest story without destroying those he cares for most?
Under Eden: The Complete Edition is a pulse-pounding set of three, interlocking crime thrillers. If you like original heroes, ingenious villains, and spine-tingling plot twists, then follow a maverick journalist's spell-binding story today!
Reviewers say: 'Pulse-pounding action. Razor-sharp dialogue. Breathtaking suspense. Humor. Modern. Scary. I'm hooked! Gar Hart is my new favorite hero.'
Tom Flood, winner of the Miles Franklin Award, says of Under Eden: "Gar Hart...twisting the tail of a leviathan as submerged as le Carré's dark webs. Furness crackles out fire and ice in a wry voice, piles on inventive and ingenious mysteries, body-slams action, and bleeds characters as damaged and compromised as any Child, Connelly, or Grisham."
The author Mark Furness was a foreign correspondent who lived and worked in the USA, the UK, Australia, and East Asia. He's also been a corporate spin doctor and political lobbyist. He claims his novel is a work of fiction. He says the good characters are based on real people - and the black hats are purely fictional. Truly.
