AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the newly-formed penal colony of Sydney, plague and starvation are a constant threat. But this time isolation has a more sinister edge. In 1919, a reclusive Sydney doctor with a dark history and a fear of treating patients is drawn into a situation beyond even his control. Beneath the bustling noise of present-day Sydney, Jacqueline's accidental discovery while on an archeological dig unearths more than just a rotting corpse.'
