Copping It Black follows detective Toni Alma, who is assigned to investigate a suspicious car accident in Perdar Theendar, the Aboriginal community she left as a child and has had little to do with over the years.
Clues will lead back to her own family, leading to Toni to navigate her way between past and present and the complexities and beauty of the Aboriginal art. The sometimes-devious practices in the global art market take Detective Toni Alma on an epic hunt for a killer.
Spanning her small Northern Territory community and art galleries across the globe, this is a murder mystery like no other, exploring culture, community and the very human pursuit of identity and belonging.
