Book Synopsis

A riveting new novel of rural suspense from the bestselling Voice of the Outback.

With the sickening realisation that his cover has been blown, Detective Dave Burrows knows his family is in serious danger from the vicious stock thieves and murderers, Bulldust and his brother Scotty.

Devastating news brings Dave back to Barrabine, where circumstances force him to question his determination to stay in the police force. How could he live with himself if anything happened to Mel and the kids?

Mel, understandably frightened, must decide who she’ll listen to. Can she trust Dave to handle this threat hanging over their family, or is her father right to argue that she should leave her marriage immediately?

With her acclaimed skill for tension and drama, Fleur McDonald has delivered another richly compelling story in Something to Hide

“Something To Hide reeled me in and held me tight from the very start. I spent way more hours reading than I should have, and than I have recently, and I can’t wait to see what McDonald has in store for him next.”


“A fast paced one sitting read that promises the reader a tale of intrigue, authenticity and believability and delivers. In terms of atmosphere, Fleur captures and articulates the intensity, energy, anticipation and the emotion of the situation.”
