In September 1972, journalist Anna Rosen takes an early morning phone call from her boss at the ABC, telling her about two bombings in Sydney's busy CBD.

High in the Austrian Alps, Marin Katich is one of twenty would-be revolutionaries who slip stealthily over the border into Yugoslavia on a mission planned and funded in Australia. It will have devastating consequences for all involved.
Soon the arrival in Australia of Yugoslavia's prime minister will trigger the next move in a deadly international struggle. ISBN: 9781760295004 Publication Date: 26 / 07 / 2017 Pages: 300 Dimensions: 153 x 234mm The Twentieth Man Tony Jones starts this book with a massive lie about the bombings. He proceeds to demean an ethnic group promoting stereotypes and half-truths. The writing is of a Year 12 level (okay-ish) and it is not challenging to read. There are no twists at all that would keep you interested.
