Summary

A dark thriller by Philip McLaren, Aboriginal author and winner of the 1996 David Unaipon Award, Scream Black Murder invites the reader into the mind of a vicious killer, as a game of cat-and-mouse ensues across some of Australia's lesser-known milieus.New Year's Day. The bodies of a young Aboriginal woman and her boyfriend are discovered brutally murdered in Sydney's Redfern. Koori detectives Gary Leslie and Lisa Fuller, from the new Aboriginal Homicide Unit of the NSWPD, are assigned to their first case and struggle to keep their eyes on the trail amid a hostile police department and their own emergent attraction.But when a young white woman is killed, the pressure on the young detectives to find the killer -- fuelled by an increasingly frenzied media -- becomes unbearable.
