…gripping stuff. – Sydney Morning Herald

…a novel as powerful in its effects as it is ingenious in construction – Who Weekly

A bitter critic of his friends’ insistence on telling true stories, Neil challenges them with a true story of his own. His shocking admission that he took his brother’s life is the first of many shocks in a story that begins in the desperate, red-ridge country of northwest New South Wales, when a city woman rents a disused house on Billy’s vast grazing property. Both she and Billy have dark secrets which take readers into the country’s toughest prisons, the opal mines of the Grawin and war-torn Vietnam. It is a story in which truth is never constant and friendships are tested to the limit.
