Product description


Praise for In The Clearing:

Pomare's new novel, In the Clearing, is written with a technical aplomb that proves his first was no fluke. There's no doubt about it: Pomare is a master of the carefully constructed, impeccably paced psycho-thriller, The Australian

There are lots of premium crime-fiction offerings this summer, but this bloodcurdling exploration of the asphyxiating grip of a cult on its followers deserves to be at the top of your pile., The New Daily

Clear your schedules, because after reading page one you won't be able to stop. In The Clearing is another breathtaking page-turner from the author of Call Me Evie. A dark, chilling, atmospheric thriller populated with mysterious and wonderfully flawed characters., Christian White, bestselling author of The Nowhere Child

Pomare alternates between Freya and Amy's stories in ways that challenge the reader to work out how these two characters connect, gradually revealing the secrets of the past until all the pieces of the puzzle fit satisfyingly, Sydney Morning Herald

Both his books are testament to the fact that he could be one of the most exciting literary thriller authors to come out of the country, The Saturday Paper

Still in his early thirties, he already writes with more assurance, and more subtlety, than some of the giants in his field. It seems safe to predict that he will one day be regarded as a giant in the field too, The Australian

If J P Pomare's Call Me Evie was a slow-burner of a psychological thriller, his follow-up, In the Clearing, is a pared-back firecracker, Books + Publishing

Past and present collide in this taut and unpredictable thriller ... Twist follows twist and nothing is as it seems, Chris Hammer, bestselling author of Scrublands

A chilling depiction of the ferocious hold exerted by a cult and its adherents. This is totally absorbing fiction, made all the more shocking by the realisation that these stories recur again and again in Australian society, Jock Serong, author of The Rules of Backyard Cricket and Preservation

Book Description

Brilliant psychological drama set in rural Australia about a girl kidnapped into a dark and mysterious cult. Will be loved by fans of SCRUBLANDS and Jane Harper's THE LOST MAN and THE DRY.
