When QF1, enroute from Sydney to London, enters Indonesian airspace, it is behind schedule, but flying smoothly. None of the 400 plus people on board have any indication that their plane will face problems. Yet that's exactly what happens - in spectacular fashion. Problems strike first one engine, then another, and eventually the plane is forced down.Last located near the island of Sulawesi, no one knows where the plane has finally landed. Is it possible it has landed safely, or has it crashed? And why are the Indonesian government reluctant to let outside help in to help locate the wreckage?Meanwhile, intelligence services in the USA have put together seemingly unconnected snippets of information, which point to a deliberate plot to down the plane and ensure there are no survivors. Australian officials are reluctant to face this likelihood - it could mean all out war.Deep in the jungle of Sulawesi, the survivors of the crash are now fighting for their lives. Tracked by enemies better equipped and better trained than they are, they are running out time, until Sergeant Tom Wilkes and his SAS Unit are deployed to rescue the survivors and avert all-out war. Can it be done? Rogue Element is a political thriller. Lovers of espionage and covert operations, and those who like to predict possible futures for world politics will be intrigued.
