Summary

Colin Fox is principled, a protector, tent boxer and an SAS warrior. And he is Aboriginal, living between two cultures - a member of the 'Stolen Generation'. As a boy he witnessed the murder of his sister Lucy and experienced extreme abuse. As a man he interrupted a serious assault upon his mentor, Caroline Connors, and later became an integral member of her family. Highly respected by his SAS unit, he was sent to the UK for special training and there connected with members of his white father's family for the first time. A passionate affair with a member of the English aristocracy resulted in his being jailed for alleged rape. Whilst incarcerated, Caroline Connors and her daughter Judy are murdered. Fox swears revenge. As a consequence he meets a vicious Melbourne biker gang involved in drugs, gun running and dog fighting, a gang which also harbours Caroline's killer. Justice is effected in Fox's own unique manner.
