One cannot help but be enriched by it.”—Anne Perry“Impressive.”—Baltimore Sun“Hyland excels at drawing the reader into a strange, rough world. This debut novel is filled with both poetic descriptions and a great deal of wit.”—Booklist“Perfect for mystery fans who are craving new horizons. . . . An intriguing tale.”—Library Journal“Beautifully written.”—Publishers Weekly“[A] colorful setting and an in-your-face heroine fetching enough to warrant a series.”—Kirkus ReviewsEmily Tempest has been away from Australia for a long time, but now she’s returned to the Moonlight Downs “mob,” the community where she grew up, half in the Aboriginal world, half in the white. She is looking forward to a reunion with her childhood friend, Hazel, and to catching up with the rest of the group.Within hours of her arrival, an old friend, Lincoln Flinders, the tribe’s elderly leader, is murdered and mutilated. The police suspect Blakie Japanangka, a renegade aborigine sorcerer, but Emily believes that the old man was slain for worldly reasons, and she starts asking questions.Adrian Hyland spent many years in the Northern Territory, Australia, living and working among indigenous people.
