From the cover: "Mina McCreery's sister Evelyn disappeared nineteen years ago. Her life has been defined by the intense public interest in the case. Now an anxious and reclusive adult, she lives alone on her family's abandoned sheep farm.
When Lane, a private investigator, approaches her with an offer to reinvestigate the case, Mina rejects him. The attention has nothing but negative consequences for her and her family, and never brought them closer to an answer. But Lane is persistent. And his obsession with the answer will ultimately risk both their lives..."

I enjoyed the read and am looking forward to read more of this author.

Il est arrivé très vite ! Oh que oui, il va bien prolonger mes vacances en Australie. Surtout que j'ai ramené deux livres de là-bas, qui circulent déjà, eux aussi se passant en plein outback. Moi qui d'habitude lis très peu en anglais, j'explose mes records ! Merci pour le partage.

Journal Entry 8 by wingIndy2012wing at Strasbourg, Alsace France on Sunday, March 17, 2024
Un excellent thriller, qui m'a bien tenue en haleine. Les personnages sont bien construits, complexes, avec leur passé (inévitable, pour un cold case), leurs peurs, leurs émotions. Les distances sont bien australiennes, quand on n'hésite pas à faire trois heures de route pour aller boire une bière. Enfin, l'intrigue est solidement ficelée, et on partage les angoisses de l'enquêteur jusqu'au bout.
Merci de m'avoir fait découvrir Shelley Burr.

Journal Entry 10 by wingpenelopewanderswing at Saint-Loup-des Vignes, Centre France on Thursday, March 21, 2024
Bien arrivé dans le Loiret... Et quel emballage magnifique et soigné, un vrai plaisir, merci!
I see this heads to Switzerland next - as I am off on a trip next week I might take this with me and read it while away, so I would be sending only when I return.. but I will keep it safe.
Thanks for making it available and for sending it on.

I had to delay starting this as I'd just finished another bookcrossing book set in Australia about a missing person (by Jane Harper) and needed to read something in a different genre in the meantime... but in the end this was very different. I just noticed that this was advertised as being "For fans of Jane Harper", so I guess the advertising was correct.
This was a new author for me and I again enjoyed being plunged into the very foreign to me wilds of Australia. The main character, with his many quirks and flaws, was original, and I appreciated discovering more about him little by little.
The ending was a bit surprising. I had the impression there was a sequel to this, and was very curious how that would sort itself out, but looking on fantasticfiction (a great site for sorting out the order of books in a series), this appears as a standalone. A shame, I was looking forward to reading more about Lane.
A good read - I'll look out for other books by this author.
I'll send this on once I get back to France.

Just as I was wondering what book to read after finishing mine last night, "Wake" arrived in my letterbox. Perfect timing!
Thank you for sending it penelopewanders !

Picture : Nannine, Western Australia.
This is not the Nannine of this crime story, but a ghost town. A former gold-mining town.

Excellent thriller. The plot is well thought out, the characters complex and the atmosphere perfectly captured. I have images of the Outback before my eyes and the accent still in my ears.

I was delighted to read this author's first thriller.
Thanks for sharing it.

Journal Entry 20 by wingsouramwing at Genève, Genève Switzerland on Wednesday, May 29, 2024
Evie (Evelyn) disappeared 19 years ago... (I hope the Lina case in Eastern France won't last that long)

Journal Entry 21 by wingsouramwing at Genève, Genève Switzerland on Thursday, May 30, 2024
An interesting cold case.
Là je peux dire que j'ai vraiment apprécié ce roman ( et découvert une nouvelle plume, Shelley Burr) Vingt ans ont passé. La jeune Evie est portée disparue.
L'outback livrera-t-il son secret ?

En bout de bookray.
Je l'apporterai à la réunion du 4 juin.
