An Emily Tempest Mystery by Adrian Hyland
Synopsis (from the publisher): Emily Tempest has been away from Australia for a long time—university, travel, dead-end jobs. Finding trouble all over the world. Now she is back at Moonlight Downs, the community where she grew up, half in the Aboriginal world, half in the white. And true to form, she soon finds trouble.
An old friend, the leader of the Moonlight Downs mob, has been brutally murdered and multilated. An old enemy, a renegade aboriginal sorceror, is the obvious suspect. Then Emily starts asking questions. He may be a loner who clings to traditional ways; he may have disagreed about assimilation; but in her opinion, that doesn't make Blakie Japanangka a murderer.
But if Blakie is not guilt of the crime, who is? And where does Emily belong? Can she stay on with the friends of her childhood? Or must she become part of the "whitefellers" world now?
