Abstract:

'You don't blow a person's head away, and then shoot him in the back.' Ken Cardinal pulled the sheet back over the body ...Ken Cardinal is summoned to Australia to identify the murdered body of his son, a laser physicist. His search for the killer - and the motive - takes him from Sydney to remote Arnhem Land and across Asia to the wilds of Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains. Along the way he is beguiled by a smart investigative journalist. Both are caught up in the web of betrayal, and discover that the hunters can become the hunted. Set in Australia's Arnhem Land and Indonesia it covers the issue of the misuse of uranium mining and dangers of nuclear weapons.
