It is 1970, exactly one year after the brutal slaying of motorcycle policeman, Constable James Cook, on a lonely outback road. The unsolved murder is re-investigated by undercover detective Al Carmody. He is assisted by his ex-policeman friend Ian, who operates a livestock truck in the outback. In true Aussie style, the friends spend as much energy teasing and joking with each other as they do probing for answers. Through liaison channels the NSW Police are joined by an Interpol taskforce when a suspect turns out to be wanted by both groups. This suspect could trigger World War III if a stolen stash of diamonds is not found and returned to the owners. While investigating the murder and the disappearance of the gems, both agencies reluctantly co-operate until the final violent outcome robs them all of a chance to nail the culprit. As the joint operation winds down, several characters are revealed to be more than they appear. Even the late Constable Cook carries a deadly secret.He could start the engine, place it in gear and release the clutch. ... and the baby would be in Cunnamulla in a couple of hours, and from there, they could make for the coast via a number of different routes. ... And that stupid mob with the Bedford truck had been put out of business with a well aimed shot to the engine.
