The only clues a hidden wartime document and the imprint of an army boot on the victim s face have led the pair from the safety of Queensland to the blood-soaked hills of Gallipoli. Now not only are Thomas s enemies on every side from the Turkish troops bearing down on the Anzac lines, to the cold-blooded killer in his own trench but as far away as London and Berlin. For, unbeknown to Thomas, the path to murder began thirteen years earlier in Africa with the execution of Breaker Morant - and a secret that could change the course of history . . .
