Synopses & Reviews
A darkly suspenseful thriller set in coastal Tasmania, where an idyllic calm is shattered by the death of a young tourist
Sarah Avery's reckless behavior has cost her a job, her boyfriend, and the independence she desperately craves. While she is home (reluctantly) for the holidays in the tiny seaside town where her parents live, Sarah's hopes for calm are shattered when she finds the body of a young female backpacker washed up on the shore. A year earlier, another woman went missing and hasn't been seen since. Is there a killer in this quiet harbor?
The arrival of the journalist Hall Flynn to investigate the murder sets the locals reeling. Hall, haunted by demons of his own and yearning for a fresh start, will do whatever it takes to break the story. And Sarah will do whatever it takes to keep her own secrets safe.
