In 2004 on Palm Island, an Aboriginal settlement in the "Deep North" of Australia, a thirty-six-year-old man named Cameron Doomadgee was arrested for swearing at a white police officer. Forty minutes later he was dead in the jailhouse. The police claimed he'd tripped on a step, but his liver was ruptured. The main suspect was Senior Sergeant Christopher Hurley, a charismatic cop with long experience in Aboriginal communities and decorations for his work. Selected for 'Best books of the year' lists by Ali Smith, Colm Toibin, Matt Condon, Peter Carey, Salon.com, The Globe & Mail and Dwight Garner in The New York Times. Doomadgee, Mulrunji. | Hurley, Christopher. | Prisoners, Aboriginal Australian -- Death. | Police -- Complaints against -- Queensland -- Palm Island. | Palm Island Aboriginal Reserve (Qld.)
