FICTION | TOP 40 BOOK CLUB READS 8 9 midnighT emPire andrew crOOme Daniel, an Australian scientist, is sent to Las Vegas to install cryptographic software to protect US attack drones in the Middle East. Separated from his familiar Canberra environment and estranged from his long-term girlfriend, he enters the bizarre and morally inept worlds of Las Vegas casinos and Creech US Air Force Base. Used to working with facts, reality for Daniel becomes increasingly blurred as he watches terrorism and counter- terrorism at “Communication Central”. His instinct for loyalty is quickly eroded. Lies and subterfuge become routine both at work and in the casinos, where he spends his sleepless nights. Midnight Empire is an espionage story for the 21st century, where there are no longer just two sides. Disconnected and threatened, Daniel escapes but is not safe in his abandonment.
