BEAT NOT THE BONES

A spellbinder in which the sultry, slovenly back country of Papua lends its insistence to the inquiry of Emma Warwick into the death of her husband, an anthropologist, which had been called suicide. The evasive reassurance of Trevor Nyall, head of the Department of Survey, does not deflect her suspicion of white men's fears- and black men's sorcery, and it is only through a trek inland, to which leeches, mosquitoes and a native ghost town contribute their horror, that she finds her answer... Ominous.
