It's build-up time in the north-western town of Ransom, just before the big wet, when people go off the rails. In the midst of a bitter custody battle, an eight year old girl goes missing. Annie, an anthropology graduate fresh from the city, is determined to uncover the mystery of the child's disappearance. As Annie searches for the truth beneath the township's wild speculations, she finds herself increasingly drawn towards Mick Hooper, a muscly, seemingly laid-back bloke with secrets of his own. Praise for the Book 'an insightful and wryly funnylook at life in the remote Outback.' Melissa Lucashenko 'The characters who inhabit and walk through this story are very real people, with all the human strengths and weaknesses that make us who we are.' Samuel Wagan Watson

This is a great read for those who like something different, or like the outdoors or the Australian outback. It's adventurous, humorous and gives warm hearted insight to indigenous Australians and into the lives of those living away from major cities. Highly recommend!
