Kezia Hayter knows these women aren't dangerous.
One hundred and eighty petty convicts, all sentenced to transportation to Australia.
On board the Rajah, Kezia makes it her duty to redeem them, enlisting a select few to create an intricate quilt. With each stitch, they are tied closer together.
But when one woman is murdered, Kezia's work is threatened. She maintains faith in their innocence, even when the men leading the investigation do not.
But if she can't find the killer, how can Kezia save them?
Based on a real-life voyage, Dangerous Women is a sweeping tale of confinement, hope and the terrible things we do to survive.
