It is 1987 and Peter Clancy, hard-drinking Melbourne Truth journalist, returns to his hometown to settle his mother's estate. Peter's two-day visit to Clarke's Flat stretches to eight as he is unwillingly drawn into the sinister secrets of this outback Queensland town.

Peter's childhood best mate Dave Tindall is now a police constable in Clarke's Flat. With Aboriginal Sam Saturday, an erstwhile stockman on the former Clancy cattle station, Dave convinces Peter to help him prove the 1960s 'suicides' of Dave's father and another man were, in truth, murders.

Peter's quest for evidence stirs up more than he bargained for - including his own shameful past.

Will Peter Clancy succumb to despair and bolt, or will he expose Clarke's Flat sins and despotism, and claim his own redemption?

'Peter seemed agitated and staggered towards them, then stopped abruptly. He wanted to face up to them, but his feet wouldn't move. He looked at Sally again and saw fear in her eyes. He wanted to scream. Peter wanted to hit Chong and Gibbo but he felt an emptiness envelop him, exactly as when he was a child.'
