Bob McTaggart returns from a tour of duty with his special forces unit in Afghanistan and his world is turned upside down. He tries to put his life back on an even keel only to find himself dangerously involved in the dirty and deadly world of drug trafficking. McTaggart has to rely on all of his sharply honed skills to survive in the tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland and on the Great Barrier Reef. The prize is worth millions, but the deceit, betrayal and uncompromising greed by merciless and unscrupulous men and women make life hazardous for all who want to play in this deadly game.
This fast moving, action-packed thriller will take you deep into the deadly world of organised crime where the only thing that matters is money. To dance with the devil is to engage in risky, reckless, or potentially immoral behaviour. To dance in the Daintree is to put your life in harms' way where the slightest slip will bring an ugly end.
