Overview


A group of travelers are menaced by an unseen force in this chilling, supernatural horror tale. A truck driver, a schoolboy, a retired bank manager, and an eccentric country woman are among the group thrown together on the Silver City Highway—where they are able to go neither forward or backward—on a nightmarish journey that won't end. And when they run out of gas, the land seems to funnel them towards a homestead where a number of gory murders have occurred. Told from shifting perspectives by characters who seem to be hiding something, suspense builds as the group collapses under the escalating stress.

Brilliant read. It builds the suspense in a wonderful way, nothing too over the top but a growing sense of uneasiness. The mix of characters and responses is also perfectly handled. An absolute pleasure to read and wonderful to see Catherine Jinks again exploring Australian mythology in a modern setting.
