In the ancient lands of Kakadu, it's not just the crocodiles you should be afraid of...
"Crisp, tense and fast-moving storytelling aside, Seaton absolutely raises the bar in rural fiction, with her fascinating glimpses of territory life." Australian Women's Weekly
Voted Australian Author of the Year in the 2014 AusRomToday Awards
Helicopter pilot Ellie Porter loves her job. Soaring above the glorious Kakadu National Park, she feels freed from the heavy losses of her beloved family farm and the questions around her father's suicide. But when a search-and-rescue mission on the boundary of the older property reveals unusual excavation works, Ellie vows to investigate.
The last thing she needs is her bad-tempered co-pilot, Kane McLaren, interfering. The son of the current owners of the farm, her attraction to him is a distraction she can't afford, especially when someone threatens to put a stop to her inquiries - by any means necessary.
Ellie will have to trust Kane if she is to have any hope of uncovering the truth of what is really going on. Between Ellie's damage and Kane's secrets, can they find a way to open up to each other before the shadowy forces shut her up... for good?
