This forgotten classic of Australian crime fiction narrates how in the remote inner desert of Australia, a group of anthropologists, amateurs and locals are carrying out an archaeological expedition into Aboriginal remains but hit upon the skeleton of a white man, buried there twenty-five years before. What seems a coincidence turns out to have darker ramifications within the group, and points towards an intentional find. The arrival of Police Superintendent Ambrose Mahon to the remote location strengthens this impression. All members of the expedition, be they locals or not, are affected by the way Mahons handles the cold trail until solving the mystery.
