    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.
