AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mitchell joins a group of contractors, all working for The Oracle, a bricklayer, in Western Australia. One of the labourers is O'Briar, an unpopular man who keeps to himself. When voices, both male and female, are heard coming from his tent at night the workers are perplexed, but it is Mitchell who solves the mystery.
