Jason Westbrook is the leader of an armed, private security team searching the Australian Outback for a stolen flash drive that holds vital information for the future of his family's company. But he is distracted from his search by the thoughts of the stunning woman he saw bathing in the river just before they entered the village.
Dr. Johanna Smith is an environmental researcher on a missionary project, working with a village in the Australian Outback. When armed men enter the village looking for stolen information-blaming two men from the research group-they take the group captive, but Johanna manages to remain hidden. As she searches for a way to liberate her team, she finds herself drawn to a handsome stranger whom she meets nightly at the river-unaware he is the same man holding her colleagues hostage. As their feelings for each other grow, only time will tell whether the secrets they keep from each other will tear their love apart, or whether their all-consuming passion will bring them back into each other's arms.
In this romantic thriller, a research scientist and a man on a mission to recover stolen data find themselves falling in love under unlikely circumstances in the Australian Outback.
This historical narrative tells the story of the shelling of Sydney and Newcastle in 1942 by Japanese submarines. Although casualties and damage were slight, the bombardments fuelled the real fear of an impending Japanese invasion, a fate dreaded by Australians for a century before 1942. The narrative reconstructs the events that occurred in both cities and includes the search for, recovery and disposal of unexploded shells. In recounting this legendary tale of two cities, the book also examines Australia's east coast defences, the activities of the National Emergency Service, and the management and communications structures that were implemented during the early stages of the Pacific War. To put it all into context, A Parting Shot also offers a Japanese perspective to the story through a critical account of Japan's submarine operations in Australian waters. Why did the Japanese launch submarine operations in Australian waters when they had no intention of invading? Were the bombardments revenge attacks following the Japanese defeat at Midway? What were the Japanese targets in Sydney and Newcastle? Were all the unexploded shells recovered? A Parting Shot answer these and other long-standing questions, dispelling many rumours and urban myths surrounding the Japanese submarine attacks.
