Get Reading: Maralinga

Maralinga by Judy Nunn

When a young British lieutenant dies in mysterious circumstances on a secret mission to South Australia, his fiancee, journalist Elizabeth Hoffmann, travels halfway round the world to uncover the truth. Set in 1956 during the darkest days of the cold war, Maralinga is a gripping, fictionalised account of a shocking event in our history, when the British military detonated nuclear weapons in the Australian desert. At the heart of this powerful novel is the suffering of the local Aboriginal people, whose lives were destroyed or changed forever.
