We start our journey back in the bleak world of 1947 at a dry old Northern Queensland town, and — then jump right across the world onto the Hungarian Great Plains of Hajdú-Bihar.
Your first introduction will be with a tough Australian horseman named Brian Campbell. During the 2nd World War he served for two years as one of ‘Curtin’s cowboys’ a secret militia that lived off the land in Northern Australia and forever on the lookout for Japanese infiltration.
Now take a dramatic leap into the damaged mind of István Gabor, a returned Hungarian soldier, Waffen SchutzStaffeln Oberscharfuhrer István Gabor 873-835K. — What! … What was all that about?
It will all be explained … and a few chapters on you will meet Mrs. Mária Vargha, or … as the Hungarian’s say ‘Mrs. Vargha Mária,’ . . . yes she’s the girl on the front cover. And Mária will then stay with you right through this story and she’s a beautiful young Hungarian woman, a heart breaker to many, and an object of desire for men holding onto power.
Now be prepared for a change in latitude when this story migrates to Australia, this is a 1950’s version of that land, unlike in culture to the current array.
Threaded between these journeys of many remarkable characters, a serial killer vents his wrath against that society that stole his youth then sent him mad.
Perhaps this man’s distress was an echo from majestic oaks dead hearts blended with the epitome of eagle divinity, . . . or just another mind traumatized by unwarranted brutality?
Yes, you the readers will draw your own conclusions.
