Wake up, Australia,' Grafton Everest exhorts viewers every morning on Australia-wide breakfast television. This doesn't please those he attacks like wily former premier Hoogstraden, whose biography Grafton is forced into writing. Grafton's day job as Professor of LifeSkills and Hospitality is under threat from the economically and sexually rapacious Vice-Chancellor Deirdre Morrow. And Lee Horton, head of Australia's newly privatised Secret Service trading as Spyforce Australia is worried too. He knows that Grafton has trouble lying. And nothing is more dangerous than a man who habitually tells the truth.
