Through a Camel’s Eye
A young camel disappears from its trainer’s paddock and the coat of a murdered woman is found abandoned in the sand dunes. These seemingly unrelated events are a far cry from the regular duties of Constable Chris Blackie and his rookie recruit from Melbourne, Anthea Merritt, in the small seaside town of Queenscliff.
Little by little and with a burgeoning sense of menace, these two unlikely detectives carefully navigate the eclectic, often eccentric personalities of the town, as well as the distain of law enforcement colleagues further afield, to uncover the unsettling truth.
Described as a ‘sea-change mystery,’ ‘Through a Camel’s Eye’ deftly juxtaposes the idyllic surroundings of a coastal Victorian town with the gravity of murder.
The characters and description of the town provide a wonderful sense of place.
