Jakarta, 1997, and the city is on the verge of a revolution. Even the Jordan children -- Petra, Isaak and Paul -- can feel it coming, shaking the edges of their privileged, protected expat world, where nothing is quite as it seems.Years later, Diana, an Australian development worker, moves to Jakarta and becomes entwined in the powerful Jordans' adult lives. As the monsoon descends, and the Jordans begin to fall apart, Diana sinks into the half-light of their past, where rumour and religion define the contours of the real, and the rules of the game change according to who is playing.Set in a global city of poverty, beauty, corruption and extreme wealth, Running Dogs is a novel about power and responsibility; about the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive, and the damage they can do.
