It's Brisbane in 1943. A provincial city is now the main staging post of the war in the Pacific. Inevitably the social, sexual and racial tensions created by the presence of US troops bring all kinds of mayhem to the fore. Into this fray walks Jack Munroe, a P.I. with a nose for trouble. Hired by a knockout blonde to find her missing husband, he turns over a few rocks and soon the questions - and the bodies - are piling up. Jack forges through the dockside bars and brothels of his roiling city to crack the case. A murky tale based on actual events during WW2.
