'It will get dark. The crocodiles will come ...It is for you to decide, Luke. Live or die - it is your choice.' Luke Evans never knew his father - he'd cleared out before he was born. So when his internet skills track down someone living at a luxurious resort in tropical Queensland who could be his dad, Luke's imagination runs wild. What happens when they finally meet is unexpected, and shocks him to the core. Luke has some hard lessons to learn as he realizes that no one is perfect, and that the world can be a tricky place, where people aren't always who they appear to be and nothing can be accepted at face value. How Luke deals with what he finds will change his life ...if he can survive.
