Moondyne Kate

by Garry Disher

Canongate was a colourful town in 1865 — convicts, a gold rush, marauding bushrangers — but nothing much happens now. Nat Whistler can’t wait to get out of this place. But then he discovers a thrilling link to the past: he’s descended from the Whistler, who robbed banks and gold escorts with the notorious Captain Kidd and was shot dead by troopers at the age of 15. As Nat peels away the layers of the past, his life takes a dangerous turn.
