This is a debut book from Andy L Semple, which has a very catchy concept - the killing off of politicians, until they return power to the Australian people - it's a concept that undoubtedly is going to spark some interest ;)

From the blurb:

The night before a crucial Senate vote, one of Canberra's most powerful politicians is executed with surgical precision.  The assassins deliver a shocking ultimatum to the Federal and State Governments - "Stop your partisan politics and restore power to the Australian people or more of you will die!"

Opening Lines:

The old beach house sat alone surrounded by beach scrub and in darkness.  Only the sound of waves crashing 50 metres northeast could be heard.  The shutters were drawn and two Kelpie cross dogs lay asleep in front of a burning fire.  A thin stream of smoke flowed out of the chimney and headed northwest, across the beach scrub towards Coolangatta.  Inside, a man sat quietly in front of the fireplace, shoving stacks of paper into hot flames.
