Strange Attractor  

Strange Attractor $20.90 ex GST

Deep in Western Australia’s mining country, against the blood-red landscape of the Pilbara, a cyclone has wreaked havoc in a remote railway construction camp.

Now, a small team of employees anxiously await the arrival of ‘the company man’, sent up from Perth to carry out his own investigation before a coronial inquiry. Dog-tired and in search of drink, they do their best to distract themselves, coming together in a makeshift mess hall. But a stormy evening of shared memories soon takes a strange and unexpected turn…

From the writer of Bastard Boys and Brides of Christ comes a gripping, contemporary tale of free-will and responsibility in the face of great temptation.
