The fast-paced deadly conclusion to the Secret City trilogy. 'Political insiders Steve Lewis and Chris Uhlmann bring biting wit and behind-the-headlines insight to this sharply observed novel ... House of Cards, Canberra style' Sunday Canberra Times

Once feared newshound Harry Dunkley has fallen, disgraced and dispirited at having failed to reveal the existence of the cabal of mandarins pulling the strings of power in Canberra.
But new purpose is in the air.
Dunkley receives aid from an unlikely band of adversaries, and as the Australian government teeters between fear and greed -- wanting US security and Chinese cash -- he looks at his enemies afresh. Resurrected Labor powerhouse Catriona Bailey and the hitherto untouchable Defence chief, Sir Jack Webster, leader of the sinister cabal, have played Dunkley at every turn. Yet there is a chink in Webster that might just bring him -- and Bailey --down.

'Lewis and Uhlmann's mischeivous use of contemporary political decisions flirts with the possibilities of a roman-a-clef ... THE SHADOW GAME is a welcome addition to the ranks of fictional representations of life in our capital ... it's a book that deserves to be enjoyed by many' Ed Wright, The Australian

'Spies, sex, vengeance, politics, intrigue ... what more could you want from a book?' Canberra Times

'It reads like an episode of House of Cards or Borgen, however the third book in the Secret City series hits much closer to home ... showcasing Canberra and its politicians at their most evil, corrupt and weak ... an engaging and thought-provoking political thriller.' Law Society Journal
