A humorous and tightly plotted Aussie outback crime narrative, drawing in such issues as immigration, racism, and the economic crisis
The world is in economic meltdown but a mining town on the edge of nowhere is booming. With the town's population exploding, it's easy enough to hide a crime—or a dirty past. Banished to the stock squad after the fallout from a police frame-up, Detective Senior Sergeant Cato Kwong is brought in from the cold to solve the case of a torso washed up on the wild shores of the Great Southern Ocean. When Kwong's investigation lifts the lid on the exploitation of migrant workers and disturbs an even darker criminal mind, the fallen cop faces powerful opposition.
