A great read. A typical Aussie yarn, with lots of compelling characters to love and to hate, and then to have your opinions turned around, and then questioned again.

Thanks, Owen. It's complete. Just 'gotta' pull my socks up and post it. I'm new to this site, but it won't take me long to find my way around.
