    In an isolated country town brought to its knees by endless drought, a charismatic and dedicated young priest calmly opens fire on his congregation, killing five parishioners before being shot dead himself.

    A year later, troubled journalist Martin Scarsden arrives in Riversend to write a feature on the anniversary of the tragedy. But the stories he hears from the locals about the priest and incidents leading up to the shooting don't fit with the accepted version of events his own newspaper reported in an award-winning investigation. Martin can't ignore his doubts, nor the urgings of some locals to unearth the real reason behind the priest's deadly rampage.

    Just as Martin believes he is making headway, a shocking new development rocks the town, which becomes the biggest story in Australia. The media descends on Riversend and Martin is now the one in the spotlight. His reasons for investigating the shooting have suddenly become very personal.

    Wrestling with his own demons, Martin finds himself risking everything to discover a truth that becomes darker and more complex with every twist. But there are powerful forces determined to stop him, and he has no idea how far they will go to make sure the town's secrets stay buried.

    A compulsive thriller that will haunt you long after you have turned the final page.

    Return Policy

    Incorrect, damaged or faulty items may be returned within 14 days of purchase for a replacement or full refund (including postage costs).

    Some of our discounted stock is "remaindered" or "marked" by the publishers. The publishers do this by placing a black stripe on the base of the book. We have attempted to display this to online customers by listing "REMAINDER" in the description of the book. We cannot accept returns because a book is marked by the publisher. If for some reason a book isn't listed as REMAINDER, we will advise the customer before processing the order.

    Should you change your mind once you have received your order, we may at our discretion offer a credit note or exchange.  Please contact us for approval.  All change of mind returns must be returned in a mint, unread condition together with proof of purchase within 14 days of purchase.
