    I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns in this story. Just when think you’ve worked “it” out you’re taken down an equally plausible pathway. Thank you

    Normally all the clues are telegraphed subtly, but I did not see this coming. Brilliant.

    This book captivated me. Beautifully written in a way that painted the Australian landscape in its harshness but also beauty. I did figure out the ending but not because it was obvious, but because it’s what I would have done. Jane Harper gives aspiring Australian authors hope.

    Worst book I've ever read. Tried to finish but couldn't. Too many characters and too all over the place. Waste of money. I'd really like a refund

    The first novel by this Melbourne journalist is set in rural Victoria in the grip of prolonged drought. Many farmers are battling depression; some are walking off their land. The town is in uproar after a young battler shoots and kills his wife, his child, and himself. Or did he? The protagonist, an AFP officer and childhood friend of the young man, left town under unpleasant circumstances some years before. He turns up for the funeral and is persuaded to stay and investigate, even though his usual beat is financial crime. Cue beaucoup secrets and intrigue, including about the protagonist, add steamy love interest, and top it off with a deliberately lit bushfire. What's not to like?
