About this ebook

"Brilliant! Every chapter holds a twist you can't see coming. Fast moving and worth the reading ride."

Chernobyl contaminated Europe. Fukushima irradiated Japan. And now ... Broome?

Worm Turning nuclear waste plant is fast-tracked on sacred ground near Broome, in Australia's wild north-west. A certain Great Power says it'll take all responsibility. Sadly it's lying. 

Life ashore becomes surprisingly threatening for scientist Lena and hacker Jessie, and their only refuge is Simon's old lugger. Sadly he's lying too. 

An eerie blue boat turns up with a glowing cargo, Worm Turning's gala night is a disaster, and a cyclone called Cyril is on the move.

And when a lethal warship pursues the lugger to an ancient land of carved red rocks, Lena discovers a committee isn't her worst nightmare after all

From the winner of the Mountbatten Maritime Award and the Western Australian Premier's Book Award for Non-Fiction.
