Gunshot Road

Adrian Hyland,

Gunshot Road
 
 
An “outstanding” mystery set in the Australian Outback (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
 
After leaving the Outback to get an education, Emily Tempest—half-aboriginal, half-white—returns to her birthplace as an Aboriginal Community Police officer. Emily’s first assignment is a murder at the Green Swamp Well Roadhouse, a case that seems open-and-shut to her partner, by-the-book Sergeant Cockburn.
 
But the suspect is an old friend of Emily’s father, a prospector with a passion for philosophy. Could he really have committed this heinous crime? As Emily reconnects with her past, she must accept her new role, and learn to live between two worlds . . .
 
“There’s a lot of guts, bravery and bravura packed into Emily’s compact frame. Her understanding of life in the Outback, its people’s idiosyncrasies and their deep-rooted culture serves as an informative travelogue. But it’s her dogged determination to discover the killer of an old geologist that makes the book so enticing. Emily is an admirable addition to the list of female investigators on the international fiction scene.” USA Today
