AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Now, somehow, Emily's become the Aboriginal Community Police Officer for the outback (not to mention throwback) township of Bluebush.

'Being allergic both to authority and to keeping her big mouth shut, she's immediately at odds with her new boss. And a death at the Green Swamp Well Roadhouse just makes things worse.

'Officially it's a simple case of two old drunks and a hammer.Emily's not convinced.

'Fast, funny and action-packed - Gunshot Road is Australia's literary thriller of the year. (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Sally.
  • Author’s note: Readers familiar with the Northern Territory will recognise that I’ve taken liberties with many factual matters, notably geography and language. My portrayal of the Indigenous characters is based upon insights gained during my years of working with a number of Central Australian communities; but the people, the language, the dreaming and places described are inventions.
  • Epigraph:

    i.

    Fire tumbles roll inward

    from a desert's edge.

    At first they appear as

    cart-wheeling Spinifex,

    later, flame beyond sight

    takes hold, enthralled.

    ii.

    It has been said

    their substances is lost forest -

    breath of dried air

    John Kinsella 'Notes of Fire-Tumbles'

    For a while the fires die down in you,

    until you die down in the fires.

    Michael Dransfield 'Fix'
