* A SUNDAY TIMES CRIME PICK OF THE MONTH *

'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

AN ACT OF INEXPLICABLE CRUELTY. A FAMILY DESTROYED.

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
