Overview

The girl you love vanishes - you search and search. No trace is found.

You see someone who looks so like her - she looks at you but does not know you, no recognition flickers. Is it a mirage, dream or desperate hope?

She likes you. You ask and she comes with you.
Her mind sees only sunlight. You see dark shadowed edges.
Can you remake your life with a person who holds no memory of you?

An unknown girl appears on an aboriginal community in far north Queensland.
She has no memory of any life before, no one knows her.
The people in the community say she just arrived one day.

Who is she? Where has she come from?
She looks like a missing backpacker, Susan, but her name is Jane.
Her past life is an unknown place from where she knows no one.
She is trying to make a new life without any connections to her past.

This is the final book of the Crocodile Spirit Dreaming Series. It tells the story of an English backpacker who went travelling in Outback Australia with a man who loved crocodiles, and how her life turned into a horror nightmare. She finally gets her freedom only to disappear.

Her name was Susan. She was on trial for murder when she vanished. She had been just released on bail, despite pleading guilty, when new evidence indicating self-defense was found. She was also pregnant and expecting twins.

Since she disappeared only a pair of shoes she was wearing have been found. They were next to a waterhole full of crocodiles. It is feared that she and her unborn children are dead, taken by crocodiles.

More than a year has passed without any other trace of her. An inquest has made an open finding on her disappearance.

Is there a link between missing Susan and this girl, Jane, who turns up out of nowhere, knowing no one, remembering nothing?

Can this girl, Jane, build a new and happy life with her two small children. Can whatever tragedy haunted her past be overcome?

This is the story of the remaking of a new life from the broken shell of the old - and how memories of the old threaten to tear apart the new. And at the dark edge lurks an ancient creature of the deep, a being whose lineage is the long lost Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime, the time when the spirits made this land. Yet beyond this dark is a new place where sunlit shadows dance.

The author's mind is a klodiscope of action, time, and places. In each book he takes you on a trip through places you've never been and asked you experience feelings you had never felt before. It was truly worth every minute I spent with the book in my hand. Thank you.
