Alex Irving, a charismatic and contradictory Indigenous woman, is thrust into the national limelight after a horrific event, Australia's embattled Prime Minister Rachel Anderson, sees a publicity goldmine for her party.

So, when the Prime Minister's cynical calculations betray her, Alex sets out for revenge that will send the political establishment into meltdown. Written by AnonymusB
