An Australian murder mystery set in the remote outback.
A Vietnamese drug syndicate tries to set up a distribution network in Australia with the help of a Vietnamese-Australian woman. A trial shipment of drugs, is intercepted by Port Hedland truck driver, Carter De Freitas, and a Swedish backpacker, Elise, a girl he picked up on the highway. Inadvertently, Elise, Carter and his three legged dog Carpenter, become thorns in side of the criminals. The drug importation is a series of disasters due to the incompetence of the two men entrusted with transporting the haul to the distribution network in Perth, and the retribution set in train by the drug boss Mr Dat. A number of twists and turns in the plot keep the police and all involved, on their toes.
"A Ripping yarn', according to one 'test' reader. 'Hilarious look at the characters of the outback', said another.
