WHEN ANOTHER SUSPICIOUS MURDER TAKES PLACE, HAMISH IS IN A RACE AGAINST TIME TO IDENTIFY THE KILLER… It’s 1885 and a South Sea Island labourer, Kaelo, is the primary suspect in the murder of a Logan sugar plantation manager and the citizens of Brisbane are outraged, and none want to know when Dr Hamish Hart discovers that Kaelo could not have been responsible for the manager’s death. Public sentiment is running high against political turmoil and the citizens are looking for a scapegoat.
Driven by his commitment to social justice, Hamish is convinced the answer to the mystery lies within the fraught relationships between the members of the Daniels family who own the Cloverton Plantation. It is when another suspicious murder occurs, and a crazed mob attempt to lynch the terrified Kaelo, that Hamish realises he is in a race against time to unravel the family’s dark secrets and to identify the killer before anyone else dies at the hand of a murderer…
