BLURB:

Australia, 1879. Stanhope O'Connor and his Aboriginal trackers follow the blood trail of the outback's most notorious killer.

REVIEW:

Ned Kelly surfaces again in ‘Behind the Black Mask’ by Jacob Edwards, the depredations of his gang explained as the deeds of a native vampiric entity, a threat that only aboriginal trackers can effectively combat, the story melding history and weirdness to striking effect.
