North Queensland Australia 1980
Seth Kelly is the nicest bad guy around. Dope-grower, bouncer and party animal, he's got a smile as big as his rep. After a few years down south in the big smoke, he's back in his hometown - Cairns.
But new players - Sydney criminals, the Mafia, and the most corrupt police force in the country, are changing all the rules. Now everything Seth thought he knew - is right out of date.
The Colour of Shadows is the first book in an Australian crime thriller trilogy set in the 1970s and 1980s. If you like your noir drenched in sunshine, and with more than a little heart and soul - then this white-knuckle thrill ride is for you.
