Publisher's Summary

When newly badged Detective Dave Burrows arrives in the West Australian goldsfield town of Barrabine - a town where prospectors live by their own tough rules - it's exactly where he wants to be. But Melinda, his wife of two weeks, is devastated at leaving behind her family, friends and career.

As Dave investigates reports of mysterious late-night trespassing, a missing person, and guns being drawn on strangers, he must navigate his way in a town where prospectors live by their own rules and find a way to keep his marriage from falling apart.

interesting plot in a rural town setting

This could have been a most enjoyable experience if it were not for the narrator. His voice was stilted and overly emphatic, ruining the whole listening experience.
The plot was sufficiently intriguing, the characters believable and the setting authentic. A shame it was spoiled by the voice.
The little novella at the end was extremely powerful!
