'A scorchingly good novel' MICHAEL ROBOTHAM

'Disher is the gold standard for rural noir' CHRIS HAMMER

'An utterly compelling mystery with rare heart and humanity' DERVLA MCTIERNAN


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 his community work - welfare checks and a light touch - is starting to pay off. Now Christmas is here and, apart from a grass fire, two boys stealing a vehicle, 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 an incident on Kitchener Street, a strange and vicious attack that sickens the community. And when the Sydney police ask him to look in on a family living on a forgotten back road, it doesn't look like a season of goodwill at all...

'In this brilliant novel, Disher takes his readers on a harrowing journey' JOCK SERONG

'An atmospheric and nail-biting novel by one of Australia's finest writers' The Times

'Disher is brilliant at rural noir, capturing the stifling atmosphere of a small town where resentments simmer' Sunday Times
