North Queensland Australia. 1981.
A private investigator in small town tropical Cairns, he's left the security work and dope-growing behind. But when an old friend is jailed, Seth gets pulled back into a dangerous world he'd rather forget.
Getting hard-case crims to turn witness against two of the most evil bastards in the far north isn't easy, but it's the rock-star guitarist he's being paid handsomely to baby-sit that's doing his head in.
Seth Kelly's got a bit of history
With heavy boys from both sides of the law unwilling to let his reputation die, Seth must keep his cool - and temptation at bay. All he wants is to spring a mate from jail, make a few dollars - and hear a classic song get written in his house. But doing the right thing will get him put in the ground.
