Words are powerful. Wil is kidnapped in an airport bathroom for surviving something he can't remember a year before in the remote Australian town of Broken Hill. He and his kidnappers are then pursued by murderous people who seem to be acting through some will not their own. Meanwhile, a young woman named Emily is taken in to a secret school where she learns the power of certain syllables to control people. There's a lot of suspense, a lot of uncertainty as to who can be trusted. I really enjoyed it, even if "deadly words" premise felt a little unbelievable. I've already read Jennifer Government; now I think I'll have to pick up some of Barry's other works.
