Peter Firth reads the powerful new novel by award-winning author James Robertson.

For twenty-one years, Alan Tealing has been a vocal critic of the investigation into the bombing of an airplane in which his wife and daughter were murdered: he believes the wrong man was convicted of the atrocity.

Acting on information he's received from a retired secret service agent, Tealing has travelled to Australia to meet the trial's key witness, Martin Parroulet. Instead of the expected confrontation, however, the men have been caught up in a saving themselves from a huge bush fire that is fast approaching the house.

Read by Peter Firth.

Written and abridged by James Robertson.

Produced by Kirsteen Cameron.
