Shepherd's Crook

Authored by Peter Ramshaw

An Australian classic about murder, greed, gold ... and growing up.

The central desert, Australia, 1942. The gold mining town of Wiluna lives in fear of death, of imminent Japanese invasion, of unemployment. Amid this tension, and fuelled by the old ethnic rivalries of the thousands of European immigrants that make up the town's rag-tag population, comes the Peeper, a serial pest to the town's women. And then the region's most beautiful girl is brutally murdered. Wiluna sits on the edge of anarchy. To keep the peace there is Sergeant John Shepherd, a bitter, and now sick, journeyman and his five junior police officers. They must stand against the fear of a town sitting on a virtual powder keg. There can be only one ending ... or can there?
