Cannongate was a colourful town in 1865 - convicts, a goldrush, marauding bushrangers - but nothing mush happens now and there's nothing much to do except hang around the Mall and get hassled by the cops.
Nat Whistler can't wait to get out of the place.
But then he discovers a thrilling link to the past: he's descended from the Whistler, who robbed banks and gold escorts with the notorious Captain Kydd and was sot dead by troopers at the gae of 15. Nat digs deeper, finding disturbing parallels between his life and the Whistler's.
And who was the mysterious Moondyne Kate, who could ride like the wind and whose voice sings form the past?
The truth is dark, elusive. As Nat peels away the layers and becomes entangled in the shadowy affairs of the town, his life takes a turn into danger.
