Publisher's Summary

Chilling secrets buried deep in wild bushland drive this thrilling new novel from best seller Anna Romer.

When an injured teenager goes missing at a remote bushland campground, local journalist Abby Bardot is determined to expose the area’s dark history. The girl bears a striking resemblance to the victims of three brutal murders that occurred 20 years ago, and Abby fears the killer is still on the loose.

But the newspaper Abby works for wants to suppress the story for fear it will scare off tourists to the struggling township. Haunted by her own turbulent memories, Abby is desperate to learn the truth and enlists the help of Tom Gabriel, a reclusive crime writer. At first resentful of Abby’s intrusion, Tom’s reluctance vanishes when they discover a hidden attic room in his house that shows evidence of imprisonment from half a century before.

As Abby and Tom sift through the attic room and discover its tragic history, they become convinced it holds the key to solving the bushland murders and finding the missing girl alive.

But their quest has drawn out a killer, someone with a shocking secret who will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

Interesting story with a lot to offer.

I quite enjoyed this Audible. It was quite a lengthy story there were a lot of different parts to it a lot of subplots going on within the actual story so if you’re going to choose this title you had to find the space to pay attention. I’m really interested in this writer Anna Romer and I think I’m going to seek out some more of her titles.

Another wonder book by Anna Romer.

A story of the many forms of love bound together with a mystery of the disappearance and murder of young girls over many decades.
Anna Romer manages to tie all the threads in this story and provide a storyline that is intriguing and satisfying in its conclusion. Narration by Eloise Oxer is also excellent.

Anna Romer does it again. Loved it!!!

I really enjoyed the mystery that evolved in this book! I could not believe the ending. I listened to it every possible chance I got. The characters are so richly complex and all their stories are so compelling. Eloise Oxer could not have been better with the narration. Please don’t change to any other narrator. Oxer is the exactly right narrator for this tale. Close to the end when very pivotal (and dangerous) events were occurring, Oxer's pace picked up with so much tension communicated that I actually could feel my heart racing. I just want more from this author. Please!!!

there she goes again...

Anna Romer never disappoints! Another soul-consuming, life-altering read from my favorite author! Together again, Anna breathes life into these intriguing and unabashedly human characters and Eloise gives them a voice. The dynamic duo, I say... able to bring the characters and their world to life, damn-near touchable, to the reader/listener! Simply put, Anna cannot write fast enough for me. Yes, one heart-wrenching, how the heck does she come up with this stuff, read per month would do nicely. Anna Romer's Book of the Month Club... I like it. And come to Cincinnati for a book signing one of these days already!

Fabulous!

This book gets you under its spell immediately. I listened to it every possible chance I got. Anna draws the reader in so quickly and holds you on the edge of your seat through all the twists and turns of this story. It's been a long time since a book captivated me like this one. The characters are so richly complex and all their stories are so compelling. Eloise Oxer could not have been better with the narration. It was just fabulous and I hate that I'm through with it but I will listen to it again in the future.

Wonderful story!

I really enjoyed Romer’s “Thornwood House” but this one is even better! Definitely hard to put down! Great narration which really adds to the Australian setting. Highly recommended!

Couldn't stop listening!

This is the 2nd book I've listened to buy this author and I have completely enjoyed (loved) both books. And the narrator is wonderful. I plan to continue to read all of Anna Romer's books and hope that Eloise Oxer continues to narrator them. This is a must listen to joy!!!

Love this author

Anna Rromas writes magnificent stories. Thornwood House was excellent. She is able to develop characters to the depth of feeling them. Under the Midnight Sky is a difficult story beautifully written ,
giving great insight to the characters and ourselves. This is a must read as well as Thornwood House.
