Double Back sees Mac fighting dangerous forces that will stop at nothing to sabotage East Timorese independence. Fighting the good fight, Mac discovers a plot to use a deadly ethno-bomb which kills only native East Timorese - who don't share the ethnicity of most Indonesians . Can Mac find and destroy the ethno-bomb before it's too late? With Double Back Mark Abernethy confirms his status as a master thriller writer.
