Officially, they do not exist, their attacks attributed to the work of natives or madmen. But one man knows they are real, and is determined to expose the truth. Ned Kelly.

But Ned is imprisoned, facing trial for the murder, and is sure to hang. His plan hinges on his one ally – a Remittance Man, an English wastrel banished to the colonies by his embarrassed family.

Because somebody has to stop the rot…'
