Classic thrillers from Ann Massey

For anyone who hungers for some serious controversy and can't get enough of James Patterson, Robert Ludlum and Dan Brown

  If you can't hide a secret here on Earth then where else is there than Space?

Abandoned the International Space Station is falling back to Earth way too soon ... scientists have not yet dismantled the secret laboratory where the deadliest weapon of mass destruction in history has been developed in contravention of the Biocide Convention. 
 The collaborators are desperate - no government can survive a scandal of this magnitude.

  Review by Shoma Mittra
Ann Massey weaves a tale of intrigue and conspiracy in this young adult adventure thriller about biogerm warfare in our times that rates with mature readers.

 Debris from a space station has disintegrated and is heading straight for the earth. NASA predicts that it will land somewhere in the vast deserts of Western Australia. When the head of mission control, Fredrick Holden is assassinated, the President of the United States sees double trouble. Not only does someone know exactly where in W.A. the wreckage will land, but also has inside dope about the deadly bacterium it contains.

Ominous warnings from the diary of Fredrick Holden foretell of the immense capacity of a single milligram of the bacterium to kill one million people. Agent H is the ultimate bio-warfare agent and death will occur within thirty minutes of inhalation.

Perth resident Geronimo Jones, known as Mo to all his friends, is a high school kid of well to do Western Suburb parents. One day Mo and his friends go on a high speed chase which results in a horrific crash that leaves Mo as the only survivor. The boy is convicted by the Juvenile Courts and sent off as a jackaroo to work on a sheep farm in the isolated Pilbara region of Western Australia.  
 When his mentor Doug leaves him for two days, Mo is witness to an amazing spectacle – the descent and crash landing of the NASA space craft. It is only by accident that he discovers the deadly cylindrical container. Instinct tells Mo to hide the capsule in the ground before he leaves the wreckage to seek help.
In a neighbouring sheep station lives Beth and when her family is captured by unidentifiable gunmen, Mo and Beth team up and resolve to find out what is going on. Here begins an unusual and dangerous adventure.
The Biocide Conspiracy is a racy novel that keeps the reader hooked. Ann Massey has written about life in Perth and the outback with knowledge that comes from having experienced life in both places.  While readers around the world will get a glimpse of life in faraway Perth and the remote cattle stations on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert, Perth and Australian readers will delight in the familiar sounds of places and roads around their hometown.
The native Australian proves to be a delightful stray from the usual American/English speak that one is used to in most books. The un-Australian may find the turns of phrases a little getting used to, but then that is what reading a good book is all about – you should come away with something new.
Ann Massey writes in an engaging manner that makes this book a good read for both young adults and older readers.

Professional Reviews

Alchemy of Scrawl
Intriguing story on several levals. This is a thrilling, action packed story but being from the U.S., this was a cultural ride into the heart of Australia as well. I loved it - the language (OZ english and U.S. English are different:), the landscape and the drama. If all you know about Australia comes from Crocodile Dundee and The Crocodile Hunter, you'll be pleasantly surprised by their good fiction writers as well.

Cheryl Casement on Goodreads
Gripping and fast paced, this novel tells the story of two teenagers from vastly different worlds who hate each other on sight. The two must somehow come together to save not only their own lives, but the human race. the novel is chock full of suspense, intrigue, even a little romance and is not so far fetched. It has a satisfying ending yet left this reader wanting more. I couldn't put it down!

Dee Bibbs on Goodreads
I love this book by Ann Massey. Mo and Beth are believable 3D characters in this suspenseful sci/fi novel. I truly enjoyed reading about their adventures from their first meeting as adversaries to becoming friends in the trying times they are facing.
