Global coastlines are flooded by the five-metre rise in sea levels. But instead of focusing on survival, China and America are blaming each other for the catastrophe, brandishing nuclear missiles like terrifying fingers of accusation.Australia is caught in the middle and is probably first on China’s hit list, owing to the US-Australian defence base at Pine Gap in the nation’s red centre.Special Forces soldier Stone Luckman is tasked with journeying in secret to Alice Springs – to blow up Pine Gap with normal ordnance before the Chinese do it with nukes.Upon arrival in Alice, he finds a town untouched by the woes of the outside world. But that’s impossible, because something else tore a hole in modern civilisation when the oceans rose. A massive solar event, dubbed the Sunburst, shut down every power station on the planet and destroyed global communications.Worse than that, the Sunburst took a heavy toll on anyone exposed to its full impact. Like a cosmic neuro-virus, it wiped people’s minds, leaving them Blank.Luckman trusts no-one. He barely trusts his own eyes. The only person he knows for sure is on his side is a woman he rescued from a collapsing building in the ruins of the Gold Coast. Mel Palace didn’t go Blank. She went the opposite way – she now reads minds.
