Really enjoyed the first of this series, Through a Camel's Eye.

Bobby lay curled like a seahorse, like a puppy… red marks round his throat… facing Swan Island.

The local senior constable, Chris Blackie and his deputy Anthea Merritt, expect the murder investigation to be handled by Geelong-based detectives from the Criminal Investigation Unit. But they’re blind-sided by the interest personnel from the secret military training base on Swan Island take in the case, strongly suspecting that the Detective Inspector may be taking direction from them.
