Set in the post 9/11 world, Australia is still a country of relative innocence with our terror threat at medium to low. All that is about to change.
With the Bali bombings, refugee boats on the horizon, and the threat of global terrorism on the increase, the Prime Minister instructs our overseas intelligence agency ASIS (Australian Secret intelligence Service) to activate an independent covert team, designated Section Zulu, to move around our closest Asian neighbours and alert Canberra to any terrorist plans, never realising the enemy could already be inside the fence. When that overseas team Section Zulu, uncovers intelligence of threats to Australia the Prime Minister decides the last line of defence will be a small locally-based covert team that will secretly terminate that threat. Headed by ex-SASR officer Tony McAvin, and together with electronic surveillance experts, the crack team track down homegrown terrorists.
But can the team overcome living and working in a shadowy world of death and deception and still become the force the country so desperately needs.
A team that will not have to answer to anyone but the Prime Minister.
A team that will be totally deniable and covert – and one that will take the fall if and when it all goes wrong.
…that team is called Section Alpha.
Terrorists plotting – Russian drug lords smuggling – Money transfered to overseas accounts linked to North Korean weapons dealers. To stop the enevitable from happening the Section Alpha team must solve the puzzle. They must protect the Australian people at all costs.
A fiery car crash. A terrorists mobile phone is retrieved from the wreckage. The contents lead the highly covert Section Alpha team on a journey across continents.
While investigating a planned terrorist attack ex-SAS officer Tony McAvin and his team realise the main suspect has fled to London and operatives are sent in pursuit.
Back in Australia one twist leads to another. Evidence uncovered suggests the attack will be more devastating than first thought.
Section Alpha are not only up against the terrorists but they must endure an attempt by ASIO to obstruct them after their covert existence is discovered.
The team are thrust on a roller-coaster ride of action and deceit. They must work against all odds to ensure the safety of the nation.
The stakes are high.
The Fallout unimaginable.
