 In 1994, seventeen-year-old Isabel Baker was murdered. The crime shocked the small town of Ashford and devastated Isabel’s Australian South Sea Islander community. The case was never solved, the killer never found. But 25 years later the opening of a time capsule unearths a secret that puts cold-case Detective James Cormack on the trail of the killer. Suspicion is cast over the entire town, fracturing the harmony they have spent years rebuilding. 


Black Snow’s unique hook - the unearthed time capsule - is a powerful entry point for a cold case mystery. But in a fresh twist on the much-loved whodunit genre the murder victim leads the investigation. The story unfolds across two timeframes, with Isabel driving the 1994 strand, and Detective Cormack the present day. Black Snow combines the character driven storytelling of a coming-of-age drama with the gripping mystery of a classic whodunit to create a unique series that is deeply rooted in its unique North Queensland setting.
