Phantom Wings Over the North follows teenage twins Joan and Mark, who team up with their prospector uncle for a camping trip in the Outback.

But when they start noticing planes on mysterious late-night flights overhead and accidentally come across a group of foreigners operating a suspicious looking laboratory in the middle of nowhere, things start to take a turn.

O’Connor keeps readers interested with an action-packed local novel, drawing on his knowledge of the outback from time spent with the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
