Thanks marmee463, the book is here already and I'm looking forward to reading it, so may push it up the mountain a bit :)

WHO REALLY KILLED THE HADLER FAMILY? It hasn't rained in Kiewarra for two years. Tensions in the farming community become unbearable when three members of the Hadler family are discovered shot to death on their property. Everyone assumes Luke Hadler committed suicide after slaughtering his wife and six-year-old son. Federal Police investigator Aaron Falk returns to his hometown for the funerals and is unwillingly drawn into the investigation. As suspicion spreads through the town, Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him twenty years earlier. Because Falk and his childhood friend Luke Hadler shared a secret, one which Luke's death threatens to unearth ...

Just finished the book this afternoon in the waiting room, while waiting for a medical appointment. Unusually, every time someone came in, I was hoping it wasn't my turn, as I really wanted to finish those last few pages :)
I enjoyed this book thoroughly. A mystery that kept you engaged to the end, even though there were a couple of sub-plots that were fairly easy to guess at. Well written and with good characters.

8 out of 10

I found this book really gripping. The characters are believable and it's written in a clear and simple style. The desolate backdrop of small rural community in a dried out countryside permeates the story and creates an unforgiving ambience. It demonstrates how it is very hard to detach yourself from a stereotypical ultra-rural upbringing, even if you physically leave. It'll keep you guessing to the end even although there are hints there. I didn’t give it more stars because there were a couple of niggles but nothing to detract from the book.

It also went down very well with the book group. We mark out of five so 4 and 5 stars all round.
