Peter Clancy is about to leave on a trip to a quiet place to write a book about his journalistic prowess when he receives a call from a family tie in Australia. Sam won't tell him the reason, but it is crucial.
When he arrives, nothing seems to have changed from his home township that he was 'Run out' of years ago, and there is still hostility by the ex-sheriff now politician festering. A project that Sam is in an uproar over that politician is in the middle.
Peter evaluates the situation with Sam’s help and decides to use his abilities and goes to the town's newspaper to write an article denouncing the project. All hell breaks out when it is published leading to riots, more murders, and upsetting corrupt people that are behind the project.
How they resolve problems 'Down under,' is interwoven throughout this story to the 'Bloody end' in the Dark Waters of crocodile infested Outback. The suspense and intrigue will keep the reader involved to that end.
I enjoyed the characters that will lead the reader into the next book in this series. However, the novel stands on its own. It is straightforward prose with Aussie humor and ‘Way of life’ examples.
