Death Adder Dreaming was first published in 1988 and delivers a realistic description of Aboriginal life in the white contact zone in and around Alice Springs in Australia’s Central desert some 30 years ago. The story centres on the murder of a part-Aboriginal Lawyer, Tony Grant, at an outback station, where his corpse is hidden in a meat locker near the main station house. As the reasons for the killing remain unclear, Tony’s father calls on his adoptive son, Rod, an ex-policeman, to solve the mystery. Rod immerses himself in the political and economic battles raging between whites and Aborigenes in what is still a frontier town, where native title and property development vie with each other. When Tony’s friend Dana, a member of the Chinese family who heads an Asian development group, is also found dead, the backdrop for the murders appears to be a local resort development initiative.
