When a murder in Symonds Street Cemetery whirls Lestari into the orbit of an unpredictable drug, she uncovers a decades-long covert clinical study targeting rough sleepers and others on the fringes - and its dark connections with her own life and history. Everything is connected: the past is circling. How far will Lestari go to save someone she loves?
Set in a vivid, grimy inner-city Auckland, Isobar Precinct is an audacious novel that explores perceptions of time and progress, and asks whether the past ever disappears. It also marks Angelique Kasmara as a writer to watch.
