In a small town in the Australian outback a small child disappears. Then a teen from the same town is found dead in Sydney-an apparent suicide. As an investigating detective looks into these events, long hidden feuds and secrets begin to reveal themselves.
The author's first book, Swimming In Silk, won a prestigious Australian literary prize. Angel Rock is as well written and is both menacing and mesmerizing.

Well-paced mystery set in an Outback town. Very descriptive, with a cast of odd and damaged characters.

Two little boys lost in the Australian outback... only one returns and does not remember what has happened to the other.

Good book, just not really my cup of tea.

Then another child of Angel Rock is found dead, apparently of suicide. But was it really? Can Gibson, the investigative detective from Sydney, solve the puzzle?

A dark, but very well written story. Characters are well developed but not always likeable. The plot kept you reading...in fact, read it in one day.
