A Murder Mystery unfolds as Cyclone Tracy destroys Australia's northernmost city.

Darwin had always attracted mercenaries, missionaries, misfits and people running from the law. They thrived in the chaos that followed Cyclone Tracy.

As Aedan struggles with adolescence and school, a cyclone destroys his city and any resemblance of normal life disappears. He leaves home, buys a motorbike and is thrust violently into adulthood, in a wild, lawless environment. Then he meets Eva, the woman of his dreams and a gifted lady who attempts to guide him through the obstacles.

But Darwin is full of very dangerous people and as an impressionable youth, Aedan keeps bad company and is led into violent crime. When their local dealer is murdered, Eva becomes involved, putting both her and Aedan squarely in the crosshairs of a vicious killer, who now has them on his list.

"I was fascinated by the Darwin scenery and landscapes, the traditional cultures of the indigenous community, and the adrenaline rush I got from the villains in the story. The main character, Aedan is quite resilient and a survivor, and in spite of his behaviour outside the law, he is a young boy with a heart of gold. Worth a read!!"
