"superb debut"

This superb debut novel is set in the Australian bush in 1885. Two teenage brothers return from a disastrous hunting expedition to find that their family have been murdered. They join a posse who travel into unexplored territory to hunt the Aboriginal tribe blamed for the killings. It is led by the chilling Inspector Noone, head of the Queensland Native Police. The violent retribution that follows tears the brothers apart.
