Tom Herrington’s son Jack, who is captain of a merchant ship, is caught up in the disastrous Pearl Harbour attack. In a later battle he is taken hostage. When his ship is captured by the Japanese, Jack fears for his life. Luckily he finds a way to escape using the knowledge of his father’s ancient secret – but that’s not the only secret the Herrington family have...

And, more accurately, who stole them? And why was a body abandoned in a cave? As the mysterious plot unfolds, life will never be the same for the Herrington family. They hoped that the remote sheep station in the unforgiving outback would allow them to finally escape their past, but destiny has its own agenda and history has a nasty habit of repeating itself. The deadly secret that Tom had endeavoured to keep hidden slowly unwinds and presents further emotional turmoil for the family...
