A story of desperation, resolution and small-town prejudice played out against the blistering extremes of life on the land. Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, a farmer turns his gun on his family and then himself. As questions mount and suspicion casts a long shadow over the parched town, specialist investigator Aaron Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him 20 years earlier.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Never knowing where it would lead but leaving nothing hanging in the end. Great to have an Aussie to listen to!

The international number-one best-selling author of Tell No One and Six Years is back with a thriller that grips and twists and turns - and, just when you're not expecting it, twists once again.

I found this a real struggle to get through - too much waffle and not enough substance. Hard to listen to and only that I paid money for the book I suffered to the end.
