From award nominated best selling Brisbane author comes another instant mystery classic…

It’s 1886 when Dr Hamish Hart is asked to examine the body of a Chinese businessman found murdered in a Brisbane factory.

The investigation takes Hamish deep into the secrets of Frog’s Hollow, a smoky world of gambling houses, opium dens and prostitution.
