Gar Hart's obsession with outing big lies has always made his kids feel second. So when a billionaire's son suspiciously goes to prison for stealing money before mutilating his own lips, Hart doesn't buy the PR line about mental illness, and digs deeper. Now witnesses are turning up dead around the globe - and Hart's own children are in the crosshairs of a dark enemy.
With the help of his gung-ho but inexperienced protégé, Hart must crack open a sinister underworld of the ultra-rich while protecting the ones he loves. Darting from Sydney to London to Shanghai trying to outsmart shadowy pursuers, the journalist realizes that exposing a murderous conspiracy of business and political titans will take both a pen and a gun...

Tom Flood, winner of the Miles Franklin Award, Australia's equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Man Booker Prize, says of Under Eden: "Gar Hart...twisting the tail of a leviathan as submerged as le Carré's dark webs. Furness crackles out fire and ice in a wry voice, piles on inventive and ingenious mysteries, body-slams action, and bleeds characters as damaged and compromised as any Child, Connelly, or Grisham."
The author Mark Furness was a foreign correspondent who lived and worked in the USA, the UK, Australia, and East Asia. He's also been a corporate spin doctor and political lobbyist. He claims his novel is a work of fiction. He says the good characters are based on real people - and the black hats are purely fictional. Truly.
