AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Darkwater is a historical home near Brisbane, owned by the Forrest family. Journalist Bob Slater, who is writing an article about the house and family, is killed in a car accident, so children's author Micky Douglas agrees to finish the article. But was Bob's death an accident? Driven by curiosity, Micky sets out to investigate and uncovers a deadly plot to suppress an old scandal of Government and police corruption, the truth about the supposed suicide of Eileen Forrest's husband, a horrific crime against the original native tribe which once inhabited the Darkwater land and a cunning murderer who is determined to remove Micky before he discovers the truth.
