From the author of the bestselling Hunters Ridge series comes this stand-alone twisty rural suspense, this time set against the dark backdrop of Tasmanian mountains.
The highly anticipated new thriller from the author of the Hunters Ridge trilogy...
Indiana O'Meara is no stranger to the forces of evil. Her own past is full of violence. Now a policewoman, Indy is always fighting to redeem herself and defeat the dark. So when girls begin to go missing at a remote cattle station in Tasmania, she is quick to agree to go undercover to investigate chief suspect Logan Atherton, the owner of Calico Mountain Lodge, even though last time she went undercover it came to a bloody end.
But her early encounter with Logan reveals a man full of contradictions. His deep empathy for horses and those he cares for is obvious but he is also taciturn to the point of rudeness, and there is a strange atmosphere at the lodge. It doesn't add up.
As Indy begins to dig deeper into the secrets at the lodge, she finds herself embroiled in a murderous web more complex and terrifying than she could ever have imagined…one that is linked to her own past.
One of the best books I have ever read
I have many many books on my shelves and in my I-books library, but this one grabbed me from the first chapter (so much so that I am writing my first ever review). I am normally quick to catch on to the ‘twist’ but this one had me up to the final moments before the reveal. It kept catching me off guard after that moment too!
An absolutely top read.
Fantastic book - one of the “can’t put it down” types
Best book this year
Could not put this book down. An absolute beauty.
