Aussie Crime Thriller

In the drought-stricken small town of Kiewarra, five hours out of Melbourne, Australia, the Hadler family is discovered horrifically slaughtered. Only the 13-month-old infant daughter is found alive. Crying.
It looks like the father, Luke, killed his wife, Karen, and his son, Billy. Then committed suicide.
Looks like...

Australian Federal Police investigator Aaron Falk comes home for the funeral. He hasn't been back to Kiewarra in 20 years. Luke Hadler was his childhood friend.

Something doesn't sit right with Aaron and he is soon involved in an off-the-books investigation with the local police sergeant.
What they discover and the secrets that they'll unearth will be shocking. To say the least.

Aaron is involved in a dark secret from the town's past as well.

The first line of this story places the bait in front of you. By the end of the first page the hook is set and you're being reeled-in by the fast-paced, tight-as-a-drum plot brimming with suspense and "breathing" characters.
The sense of place is so good you can feel the dry heat come off the pages.

A terrific crime fiction debut.
