The Prime Minister wants to snorkel in Bali with the tasty new 'Minister of Sustain-Novation and In-Ability', but his maniacal Private Secretary reminds him that the purpose of the visit is to sign the Bali Oil & Gas Access Negotiations (BOGAN) agreement. Meanwhile, the Australian Consul on Bali, Samantha Oates, is warned by Australia's top intelligence and police agencies that the PM's visit is under threat from Balinese terrorist groups. Her dismay is compounded by the sudden disappearance of her second-in-charge, Ryan 'Bloody' Blake, who is responsible for organising the visit. The terrorists lead Australia's finest diplomats, politicians and spies on wild goose chases around the temples, golf courses and art galleries of Bali before the farce is finally exposed by Samantha, with the masterful assistance of a 60-year-old, digital-whiz Granny Geek, and a schoolgirl on work experience. Written in a satirical vein similar to Ben Elton by a former intelligence officer and author for Lonely Planet guidebooks, this racy and engaging action-comedy-political-satire is based almost entirely in Bali. The Oates Trilogy continues in Vietnam and Malaysia.
