Detective Dave Burrows returns in a page-turning new novel of rural suspense from Voice of the Outback, Fleur McDonald.
‘Nobody does rural fiction quite like Fleur McDonald.’ Weekly Times
‘A family drama at heart, the book is an authentic exploration of grief, family estrangement, and life on the land (fans of McDonald’s previous novels will enjoy the return of Detective Dave Burrows)’ The AuReview.com on Voices in the Dark
Detective Dave Burrows has longed for the top job in the Stock Squad but never thought he’d be acting in that role while his partner and best mate, Detective Bob Holden, is treated for melanoma.
Bob is keen to get back on the road and Dave can’t wait to go bush either, expecting the trip will be much the same as usual.
But the trip doesn’t play out that way.
Multiple bomb blasts in the small country town of Kallygarn send shock waves through the state of Western Australia, and Dave and Bob are once again drawn into the criminal underworld.
