On a Yankee clipper bound for Sydney Harbour the mysterious Michael O'Flynn is watched closely by a man working undercover for Her Majesty's government. O'Flynn has a dangerous mission to undertake...and old scores to settle. Twelve years have passed since the murderous event which inextricably linked the destinies of two families, the Macintoshes and the Duffys. The curse which lingers after the violent 1862 dispersal of the Nerambura tribe has created passions which divide them in hate and join them in forbidden love. Shadow of the Osprey, the sequel to the bestselling Cry of the Curlew, is a riveting tale which reaches from the boardrooms and backstreets of Sydney to beyond the rugged Queensland frontier and the dangerous waters of the Coral Sea. Powerful and brilliantly told, Shadow of the Osprey confirms the exceptional talent of master storyteller Peter Watt.
