In an isolated country town ravaged by drought, a charismatic young priest opens fire on his congregation, killing five men before being shot dead himself.

A year later, journalist Martin Scarsden arrives in Riversend to write a feature on the anniversary of the tragedy. But the stories he hears from the locals don't fit with the accepted version of events.

Just as Martin believes he is making headway, a shocking discovery rocks the town. The bodies of two backpackers - missing since the time of the massacre - are found in the scrublands. The media descends on Riversend and Martin is the one in the spotlight.

Wrestling with his own demons, Martin finds himself risking everything to uncover a truth that becomes more complex with every twist. But there are powerful forces determined to stop him, and he has no idea how far they will go to make sure the town's secrets stay buried.

Picked this book from a public bookshelf in Anna Bay, Australia. With high recommandated by bronwyna. So it travel with me far away home to Germany.
Now I discovered that I have a copy in german, too (German Title : Outback). I made my life easy and read the story in german - but I like to re-read (in original) again sometime. such a good story and writing !
An insanely good thriller: well written, holds the suspense until the end, detailed characters that develop or present themselves over the course of the plot, and a great story about guilt and atonement, appearance and truth.
An all around successful debut novel. I'm curious to see if subsequent novels can maintain this quality.

I count this for Australia /Pacific by the readers Challenge 666 in 2023 (

What a great read, it was really hard to put down. So many twists and turns, I'm not sure how the author kept track of the plot, at times I had to go back and recap, things changed so quickly. Highly recommended. Thank you RazFaz, loved it.
