The Swan Island Connection
A shocking murder rocks the quiet coastal Victorian town of Queenscliff, a place where police work usually entails minor traffic infringements and dealing with the occasional Saturday night drunk. Local senior constable Chris Blackie and his deputy Anthea Merritt fully expect a murder investigation to be handled by the Criminal Investigation Unit based in Geelong. But they’re blind-sided by the interest taken in the case by shadowy figures from the secret military training base on nearby Swan Island.
Consigned to the edges of the investigation and fearing an imminent wrongful conviction, Chris and Anthea defy their superiors to follow their own lines of enquiry – at great personal risk.
Like Garry Disher, Johnston makes evocative and effective use of her setting, bringing the little town of Queenscliff to vivid life.
