A conspiracy that will end alternative energy research; an organisation killing to protect its interests – and a bomb that will change the face of terrorism...
Brisbane. Early 1943.
A town under US occupation…friendly though it’s supposed to be.
Macarthur has set up his HQ in Queen St and the Japs are being held at Kokoda, but it’s not over yet.
The Aussie troops back on leave from the jungle don’t like to see their women consorting with the rich and flash GI’s that infest the pubs and clubs. There have been outbreaks of violence between the allied troops.
And that’s just the whites.
Tara Sharp is back in this frightening foray into the music industry.
Things are a bit hot for Tara Sharp in her home town of Perth, so she jumps at the chance to leave town when a music promoter offers her a gig looking after a difficult musician who's touring Brisbane.
Tara Sharp is at it again! Things are finally looking up on the work front, which may just mean she'll be able to escape living in her parent's garage.
Not only has the owner of a motorcycle racing team put her on retainer to find out who's sabotaging his bikes, but a wealthy 'madam' (of the bordello variety) wants her 'girls' coached on how to read their clients more astutely.
Set between 1965 and the 1980s, first in the heart of workaday Brisbane and later in the subtropical surroundings of the Gold Coast hinterland, "The Groundsman" is a story of family violence, suppressed sexual tension, rage and greed.
In 1969 a home-made bomb explodes in the sleazy heart of Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, killing eleven people and igniting a controversy that could threaten the government itself. When small time criminal Johnny Arnold is charged, his fight for justice sets two men - father, then son - on a collision course with the state's most powerful men.
Nyst's powerful tale of corruption, idealism and personal courage, spans two decades of dark political intrigue and sensational courtroom drama.
Tara Sharp should be just another unemployable, twenty-something, private school girl but she can see people’s auras.
The trouble is, auras sometimes tell you things people don’t want you to know. When Tara reads crime boss Johnny Vogue’s aura, she’s sucked into an underworld ‘situation’ that sees her running for her life.
