An old man dies at the precise moment that a child is born, and a bond is forged between them which will last for eternity. Jacob Shaunessy is having vivid dreams of romantic interludes with a captivatingly beautiful woman. She is familiar to him and yet, he can't find her in his memories. He knows instinctively that the exotic locations, in which the dream scenes are played out, are in the northern tropics of Australia; however, he has never been to that part of the world. The dreams lead him to a small town in Far North Queensland where he and his best mate Mick Dyson are drawn deeper into a dark mystery which reaches back almost 80 years and will plunge them into the depths of revenge and violent death, as the past comes forward in a final attempt to end a deadly vendetta.
