A gloomy murder mystery set on the shores of Evelyn Bay in Tasmania, narrated by new father Kieran as he comes to terms with his guilt, grief and realizations while a young woman is murdered on the beach--the same week he returns home for the first time in twelve years. You’ll be captivated by the mysteries of the present and past, told exquisitely through Harper’s writing. The atmospheric plot that will keep you guessing until the very end. — Kirstin Swartz
“Jane Harper returns with another atmospheric psychological suspense novel, this time set on the Tasmanian coast. Harper’s landscapes are tangible, exquisitely drawn, and as important to her stories as any character. The laid back and beautiful — but slightly run-down — beach town of Evelyn Bay is the star. Though there is a new body and an old mystery here, the novel focuses more on the inner conflicts, guilt, and secrets of its characters — a close group of lovers, friends, and family who are all holding back parts of their past. Reading the book was like watching the waves lap at the mouths of dark caves from a Tasmanian beach. An excellent escape!”
