When General Patrick "Hulk" Scott, head of the Australian Intelligence Service (AIS) recruits the young and promising Max Shaw, he knows the man's talents are unusual and desirable.
But as Max goes through training and orientation and learns what becoming an intelligence agent is all about, Hulk and his cohorts start to see Shaw has something truly rare: an instinct for what to do and when to do it, and a speed and ruthlessness that makes him one of the most dangerous young agents the Service has ever seen.
Almost before training is even over, Max "Prince" Shaw is pushed into active duty. There is an unholy trinity, conspiring for their own reasons, to bring down the fall of humanity. Max is relentless in his pursuit of the people responsible for the wave of terror, while questioning the actions he must take to succeed, including lying to the man he loves.
Shaw and his new friends Blake, Jacob "Flash" Gordon and their feisty comrade, Kate, must act with all due speed to stop the advancing hellish crusade.
This action-packed rollercoaster ride hurtles along breathlessly as these brave agents fight for the freedom of the world and race against time to save everyone in it.
Agent Max "Prince" Shaw's initiation has begun.
