Mists swirling through the rainforest at O’Reilly’s ... stinging spray as catamarans race across Moreton Bay ... they’re all in a day’s work for journalist Annie Bryce.

It’s the whale research on the Sunshine Coast that triggers a mystery: the tight-lipped young English scientist ... the digger, dead in World War Two ... can they be connected?

Annie’s investigations plunge her into a world of secrets and vengeance - and more strife than she can handle ...
