North Queensland Australia. 1982.
Seth Kelly's a good guy . . . who knows just how bad he can be.
Times are changing in the tropical port of Cairns. Flash hotels and high-rises are going up - and big marijuana money is rolling in. But for Seth, making a living in his home town as a private investigator still isn't close to easy.
Luckily he's got a nice earner set up with a real joker of a cop. So when a hard-as-teak ex-ship's captain hires him, paying top dollar, it starts feeling like the big league. Problem is, the bastards want him to do things . . . he doesn't do anymore.
To keep him on his toes, Seth's also got the two coolest women he's ever met back in his life - one with something priceless, the other probably his best friend. But the only way he's going to get a sweet future - is to escape a dirty past. A whole lot of history is about to bite him on the arse.
