In the steamy jungle of Southern Papua in the early 1950s, a white plantation owner is murdered. Bearing the marks of an horrific knife attack, his body is found in the veranda bedroom of the plantation's main house, four miles inland from Baxter Harbour.

The incident proves to be an intriguing case and several suspects are uncovered: an expatriate sub-manager, Papuan natives and the victim's beautiful German born wife.

An exciting and compelling story from start to finish.
