Red Can Origami

Ava has just landed a job as a reporter in Gubinge, a tiny tropical town in Australia’s north.

Gubinge has a way of getting under the skin. Ava is hooked on the thrill of going hand-to-hand with barramundi, awed by country, and stunned by pindan sunsets. But a bitter collision between a native title group and a Japanese-owned uranium mining company is ripping the community in half.

From the rodeos and fishing holes of northern Australia, to the dazzling streets of night-time Tokyo, Ava is swept in pursuit of the story. Will Gerro Blue destroy Burrika country? Or will a uranium mine lift its people from poverty? And can Ava hold on to her principles if she gives in to her desire for Noah, the local Burrika boss?

‘This is a powerful novel on every level. The writing is stunning, capturing the wild nature and beauty of Australia’s north.’ Good Reading magazine
