Warriors in the Shadows
Alfie Woodard: Special Air Service tracker, Aboriginal spiritual leader, and contract killer for drug lord Jay Burrell. Alfie knows how to stalk and torture a victim and how to blend into society without suspicion. But it's his ritualistic murders, his aboriginal magic and the way he devours his victims in ceremony that send a message to Burrell's enemies. Charley Payne was losing it. He had spent his life as a door kicker for the US Central Intelligence Agency, working in the world's hot spots. When his friend, Detective Bobby Lee Martaine, realised that Charley was burning out, he offered him a job. Life as a forensic photographer was uneventful and peaceful-just what Charley needed. Charley is called into photograph a gruesome murder scene with no fingerprints and only one clue, a bizarre Aboriginal painting. More victims cannibalised. When Bobby Lee and his family turn up dead, Charley returns to the way of the gun. But he will be fighting a war on the spiritual leader's turf, a battle that took place in the Aboriginal dream world five centuries before.
