AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When the body of Alex Petersen, an employee of Parks Australia, is found at Gunlom Falls in Kakadu National Park, the Northern Territory Police are determined to uncover the truth behind his murder. Tensions are high between the Traditional Owners, government and a global miner, as the dispute over the environmental clean up of Ranger Uranium Mine continues. Meanwhile, is there a cover up of government funds behind a gas fracking mine on aboriginal land and a port too close to cultural sites in Darwin. An indignous paleo astronomy course field trip in Kakadu, brings together a young Norwegian marine biologist, an astronomer from Edinburgh, and an archaeologist from Sydney. As the disparate group of characters navigate between the worlds of politics and culture, they uncover secrets that could explain the murder' (Publication summary)
