TRUCK THAT by Steve Rogers

Carter de Freitas is a truck driver in the northwest of Western Australia, who picks up Elise a young, stranded Swedish tourist, on a lonely stretch of road. She is going to Broome to join the crew of a charter boat. Circumstances conspire to have de Freitas join the cruise. It is not the fishing trip it purports to be, but an illicit drug pick up. Elise and de Frietas are instrumental in foiling the operations of an inept gang of Australian drug distributors and a vengeful Vietnamese mafia chief. Through a series of misadventures the couple and de Freitas's dog Carpenter are chased throughout  the north-west.  The death of various protagonists make the couple realise the game they are involved in is serious. The Kimberley coastline and the red interior of the north-west provides a scenic setting for this couple who are bound by a love of art and painting, and the fatherly attitude of de Freitas and Elise's need for a father figure.

When a young city man chases a career change as a jackaroo on a cattle station in the Kimberley, he could not have anticipated becoming involved in an anthropological mystery. The death of a field scientist investigating her theory that the region may have been settled by a hitherto undiscovered group of Aboriginal people is based on her discovery of a new form of rock art. Her death was originally thought to have been accidental, however, there appear to be vested interests who want to disprove or subjugate her theories. Motive enough for wanting her dead?
