I picked this book up pretty well as soon as it arrived as it's one there's been a lot of discussion about recently.  More in review to come.

From the Blurb:

Long ago, Meston Park in Brisbane's West End marked the city's boundary. A curfew kept its Aboriginal population outside the city limits after dark.

When the park becomes the site of a multi-million dollar development, the Corrowa People vow to fight and file a native title claim. Hours after rejecting the claim, Justice Bruce Brosnan is brutally murdered.

Some believe it is the work of an ancient assassin, returned to destroy the boundary.
