Publisher's Summary

In the highland valleys of New Guinea a small colony of Europeans confronts the dark power of tribal sorcery.

In a valley deep in the highlands of New Guinea lives a small colony of Europeans. One of them is Kurt Sonderfield, a doctor with a shady past who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

N’Daria is a hauntingly beautiful native girl whom Sonderfield has trained in the art of seduction. Kumo is a young sorcerer who has fallen under Sonderfield’s sway. Only two dare oppose Sonderfield: the old French missionary Père Louis, and Gerda, the wife Sonderfield has betrayed. 

As the passions and power plays of the Europeans collide with ancient highland magic, the beat of the kundu drums thunders through the valley, bringing the story to an explosive climax.

Critic Reviews

"West is a great story teller, a writer who can spin a fine yarn, and keep us guessing until the tale is told." (The Age)

"Morris piquantly summarises the human dilemma. A man of the broadest urgent and humane voice." (Thomas Keneally, winner of the Booker Prize)
