Emily Tempest is small, black, under the name snaky as a taipan’s tooth and the woman less likely ever embark on a career in policing.But his companion former superintendent Tom MacGillivray persuaded him to sign as the Aboriginal Community Police Officer for Outback (not to mention throwback) Bluebush Township.Then Tom is hospitalized and Emily finds herself working for a new guy instead of a ring next door, a martinet called Cockburn.Being allergic to authority and keeping her big mouth shut, Emily immediately disagrees with the new boss.And death at the Green Swamp Roadhouse makes it hard for things to get complicated.Cockburn thinks it’s a simple case of two old drunks and a hammer.Emily’s not convincedAdrian Hyland takes us to the outback – a place that we think we know and have for the most part never seen.Present us the people who belong there – a different people, as wise, stupid and fallible as the rest of us.And spinning, for us, a veil of spirit and lyrical beauty through which we can truly see them.
