Publisher's Summary

Some relevant facts about Grace: apart from being named after a 100,000-year-old skeleton, she was 29, and for much of the past three years she'd been hiding from a stalker. Physically and emotionally besieged, Grace attempts to claw back her personal territory by abandoning her inner city life as a film reviewer and fleeing to the remoteness of the Kimberley, the northwest part of Australia where existence and territory have altogether wider implications.

Lying low, working in a wildlife park, she reclaims her sanity amid the crocodile pens and snake cages by visualising herself as a media creation; a woman of mystery, a woman overcoming the odds. Her only links with the outside world are two men: her father, a controversial anthropologist famed for discovering the ancient remains of "the first modern woman", and her nemesis, her stalker.
