A suspenseful, action-packed comedy about surviving the GFC with a lot of ingenuity and luck. Full with plot twists, shape-shifters and deception, Ali Allyson's Bicycle Day delivers on all fronts.
When three US Army soldiers in Afghanistan feel the lingering effects of the global financial crisis and have limited options, the idea of "exporting" high-grade Afghani hashish seems so crazy, it just might work. All they have to do is convince army intelligence officer, Agent Mike Bronson.
As he assembles a motley crew consisting of a flamboyant Taliban warlord, a CIA officer, and international military personnel, Project Hush-Hush begins to come to life and turns into a multi-million dollar drug empire.
Back on U.S. soil, the crew face challenges from multiple parties: a ruthless organisation known as the Enlighters, a doggedly determined DEA agent, and the Pentagon, all hot on their heels determined to crumble their empire one "hashish brick" at a time.
With the tension rising, new Australian and Chinese partners entering the game, crumbling alliances and special forces closing in, they quickly realize the stakes are higher than they ever imagined. The syndicate is forced to face a startling conundrum: does the challenge lie in creating an empire or defending it?
