A roller-coaster terrorist thriller from Australia's answer to a post-Osama Tom Clancy.

Jed Walker has 48 hours to save the world.

The world is under cyber attack. A secretive terror outfit, known as Zodiac, is preparing to unleash chaos. The only thing certain is the intent to create a devastating global catastrophe.

The US President has the power to enact the Internet Freedom Act the 'Kill Switch'. Turning off the Net will stop the attacks. But it's not that simple. The US will plummet into pandemonium if electronic communications cease. The rest of the world will follow.

One man, ex-CIA operative Jed Walker, has 36 hours to stop the terrorists. But for Jed, Zodiac isn't the only thing he has to worry about. To protect the future he must reconnect with a woman from his past. No matter which way he turns, he has tough choices to make. Not everyone will get out alive. For Walker, the countdown starts now . . .

Kill Switch is an edge-of-your-seat thriller full of action and suspense.

'Phelan writes in swift, gritty prose . . . vivid and suspenseful, drawing you right in.' - Sydney Morning Herald
