AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Maralinga is a story of British Lieutenant Daniel Gardiner, who accepts a twelve-month posting to the wilds of South Australia on a promise of rapid promotion; Harold Dartleigh, Deputy Director of MI-6 and his undercover operative Gideon Melbray; Australian Army Colonel Nick Stratton and the enigmatic Petraeus Mitchell, bushman and anthropologist. They all find themselves in a violent and unforgiving landscape, infected with the unique madness and excitement that only nuclear testing creates.'

Notes

  • Dedication: To Justine
  • Author's note: The Indigenous names and regions used in this book are those used in the Encyclopaedia of Aboriginal Australia (D. Horton, general editor) published in 1984 by Aboriginal Studies Press for the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies...

    In researching the subject of Maralinga, I have encountered many contradictory reports in both the literature I've studied and the material I've access on the internet. While weaving the facts through my fictional story I have aimed for a general consensus of opinion, but there are so many variables I've come to the conclusion that no-one really knows the full truth, and probably never will.
