About the book

Book cover image: Amnesia by Peter Carey AO.

When Gaby Baillieux releases the Angel Worm into the computers of Australia's prison system, hundreds of asylum seekers walk free. Worse: an American corporation runs prison security, so the malware infects some five thousand American places of incarceration. Doors spring open. Both countries' secrets threaten to pour out.
