Kakadu Mystery by Nya Alison Murray
When the body of Alex Petersen, an employee of Parks Australia, is found at Gunlom Falls in Kakadu National Park, the Northern Territory Police are determined to uncover the truth behind his murder. Tensions are high between the Traditional Owners, government and a global miner, as the dispute over the environmental clean up of Ranger Uranium Mine continues. Meanwhile, a gas fracking mine is being built on aboriginal land and a port could be built too close to cultural sites in Darwin , with government funds.
An indignous paleo astronomy course field trip in Kakadu, brings together a young Norwegian marine biologist, an astronomer from Edinburgh, and an archaeologist from Sydney. As the disparate group of characters navigate indigenous culture, political secrets are uncovered that could explain the murder.

I decided to write about climate change because I think people deserve to know the facts about the precariousness of our situation. Urgent action is required, and we have to invest in renewable energy, clean technology and a sustainable biosphere now. So I started writing about our response to climate change.
It seems that the ancestors have been facing climate change, overuse of resources, and migration in search of opportunity for a long time, actually since the last Ice Age.
I realize that we are all here today because of the resourcefulness and inventiveness of our ancestors, so I thought other people might be interested in our remarkable evolution through proto-history since the ice age. I also want to share my knowledge of the current position of us all, people, organizations, business, government and the UN in addressing the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.
I have a career as an Information Technology consultant and I am Australian, though I have spent many years working in the UK and Europe. I love the beach. I surf and windsurf at the Gold Coast. I also love the mountains, and I snowboard every winter in French speaking Switzerland, where I have deep ancestral links. I am an avid consumer of literature, poetry, music and art, particulalarly Australian indigenous art, which I collect. I love nature, all animals, plants and trees, and I confess I am easily manipulated by cats, which gives me lot of pleasure.
