Camp Leichhardt by Greg Barron (Paperback)
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Ben Mulligan is a cop from the Northern Territory town of Katherine, with more than his share of problems. When he heads down to Camp Leichhardt, a Grey Nomad camp on the Roper River, to fish and get away from the stresses of life, he finds that all is not what it seems.
Ben uncovers a criminal conspiracy that will destroy lives and wreak havoc on local communities. With the beautiful Malea as his ally, he has to face his past head on, and tackle a cartel intent on making money at any cost. Yet, in doing so, he risks everything, even his own future.

He has lived in North America, New South Wales and worked in and around Katherine, Northern Territory, for almost a decade. He once crossed Arnhem Land on foot, and has a passion for the Top End landscape.
His books, published by HarperCollins Australia and Stories of Oz Publishing, are all gutsy pageturners.
