    • Synopsis
    • Dani Makovitch is a presenter at RFB – Radio Free Broadcast – one of the few radio stations still broadcasting freely in a world that is becoming more and more paranoid due to the increase in terrorism and a populace in rebellion as draconian control systems are put in place by an increasingly unified one world government.
      With the Federal Protection Force patrolling the streets and watching every move that citizens make, it is increasingly difficult to exercise any freedom of speech. However when Dani’s phone-in program features callers with information on the increased alien sightings, a sinister call makes Dani realize that ‘they’ are indeed everywhere.
      When her best friend and flat mate, the underground reporter Susan Ashler is killed shortly after visiting the site of increased UFO activity, Dani’s world starts to fall apart as she realizes that not only have people been going missing, but there is evidence of strange prison camps where whole families are being held illegally.
      When she is approached by Adrian Dobson to search for his wife Maria, Dani starts to feel cornered as the troubled Detective Inspector Farrow who is investigating officially tries to get a little too close for comfort.
      With a warning in her ears from Susan’s stepmother Veronica, Dani doesn’t know who to trust when she discovers the FPF are searching for a mysterious Key which is linked to ancient predictions. As mention of these prophecies surface everywhere she goes, Dani’s life is turned upside down as the hunt for the missing key intensifies – and she realizes time is running out.
