A murder thriller set in Outback, Australia. Backpackers alone in the isolated Red Centre of Australia, in the cruel Outback alone, frightened, surrounded by an impenetrable wall of silence and mystery, where random acts of violence strike at any moment, where the vastness, the isolation, anxiety, fear and febrile thoughts convulse the traveller into a vortex of hysteria and high drama. The boyfriend shot in the head. Brutal savagery against a defenceless woman after her boyfriend is coldly eliminated in the remoteness of the Australian bush, miles from any form of civilisation. Then the slow march to recovery and sanity while the press and the police unravel the surreal past in a frenzy of press speculation, doubt, accusations, lies and mistrust. To finally have the matter dragged through the mangle of a courtroom drama, where the heroine is debased, abused, accused and finally vindicated.
