'A powerful and universal story of the tragedy when traditional cultures meet the might of the mining industry. Bruce Honeywill weaves his fiction through the reality of remote Australia told with a skill that takes the reader to a beautiful and little-known landscape. It is a story of lost love and fighting for a truth caught in a violent environment of resistance, national anti-terrorism forces, and corrupt mining practices, a story that rewrites the thriller genre. Brewster stands between anti-terrorist forces and a mine under siege. Can he stop the bloodshed? In Australia's Outback an armed Indigenous group has taken over a mine to stop the destruction of a Sacred Site. Legal investigator Brewster tries to stop the mining in the Courts but is drawn into the siege following a brutal murder. Brewster has been defending the poor and marginalised for years. When he realises that the mine has been approved through a corrupt process, he challenges it's legality in court. But the return to an Indigenous community of an SAS soldier sees the People take the law into their own hands attracting the might of Australia's anti-terrorist strike forces. Brewster is the meat in the sandwich.' (Publication summary)
