Publisher's Summary

Constable Paul Hirschhausen runs a one-cop station in the dry farming country south of the Flinders Ranges. He’s still new in town but the community work - welfare checks and working bees - is starting to pay off. Now Christmas is here and, apart from a grass fire, two boys stealing a ute and Brenda Flann entering the front bar of the pub without exiting her car, Hirsch’s life has been peaceful. Until he’s called to a strange, vicious incident in Kitchener Street. And Sydney police ask him to look in on a family living outside town on a forgotten back road…. Suddenly, it doesn’t look like a season of goodwill at all.

Good Story, well narrated

Good storyline, I didn't guess the ending which is always a plus. Narrative was great and not over dramatic. Thoroughly enjoyable story and I am happy to recommend it.

Small town secrets.

Found the initial drawl of the narrator a little irritatingly slow to start with, but once the story started to unfold the narration picked up pace. one the whole enjoyed the story.

Justice prevails

slow to start but listen, it ALL comes together at the end. I enjoy these books where you can have your theories on who did it and not like a lot lately when the villian is not introduced until the end

Excellent performance for a a great story

For the second book in the series, it appeared to move at a slower pace than the first, but I couldn't put it down! It intrigued me from the start and flowed excellently from the first novel and gave a lot more than I thought possible. Definitely a series that needs to be read in order to be fully appreciated.
A much better performance in this novel, very well read, Steve is one of my favourite audible narrators

great story, familiar and empathetic characters

As a local South Australian felt familiar with places and loved the empathy of the main character. Characters generally were relatable, not over simplified, an enjoyable read
