Summary
Detective Inspector Scobie Malone and sidekick Sergeant Russ Clements have been sent from their Sydney headquarters to the Australian Outback to help solve the murder of Ken Sagawa, manager of South Cloud, a Japanese-owned cotton factory in the town of Collamundra. The local cops--Narvo and Baldick--are cooperative to a point, but Scobie is soon aware that the town's power center is autocratic Chester Hardstaff, whose equally autocratic daughter Amanda is married to hard-drinking Dr. Max Nothling. Hardstaff's own wife was murdered years before, in a case never solved. Scobie and Clements move gingerly but tenaciously in the face of heavy local prejudices against outsiders and against their own Aborigines

Summary
In the town of Collamundra, Australia, the corpse of Japanese farm manager Kenji Sagawa is found in one of his cotton mill's threshing machines. The prosperity that his company had brought to the small town had also engendered racial tension, and Detective Inspector Scobie Malone of the Sydney Police Department is called in to investigate--hardly a vacation. The local corrupt government and law enforcement resent him, and the Aborigine population gets ever more restless. When the only Aboriginal police officer becomes the target of everyone's frustration, Scobie becomes increasingly sympathetic--as well as increasingly involved with the cold murder case of the wife of Collamundra's most famous citizen seventeen years prior. As more and more people flock to this dry town for its annual horse race, the list of suspects becomes longer and longer. Can Malone the visitor crack the case?
