Two brutal murders begin this story, set in north-west NSW. As we know the identity of the perpetrator, the focus of this book is not on discovery of the criminal but rather on understanding his character, on following the much-thwarted police investigation into an ever-mounting number of deaths surrounding him, on political and financial corruption and on the lives of the landowners and the rural community.
