Synopses & Reviews
City detective Joe Cashin, reposted to a quiet Australian town, is thrust into a murder investigation in which the evidence points to three aboriginal boys. Cashin, unconvinced, suspects something far worse than a burglary gone wrong.
"What do you do if you want to turn the latest book by a writer who's won five Ned Kelly Awards (Australia's equivalent to the Edgar Awards) into an equally impressive audio version? Blackstone had the perfect solution: get a reader like Hosking, who can do all the voices, from big city cop Joe Cashin, young and old aborigine men and women and truly frightening racist cops who will do anything to bury their deadly secrets. Hosking's characters are instantly and subtly rendered, springing to life quickly in listeners' minds. And his reading of Temple's descriptions of the Australian countryside, ranging from lush to rough, is a virtual audio trip to the source. This talented team catches the excitement and the beauty of a unique land. A simultaneous release with the FSG hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 2)."
