About the Author
Sarah Barrie is a bestselling Australian author writing suspense in rural settings. Her debut bestselling print novel, Secrets of Whitewater Creek, earned her a spot as one of the Top 10 breakthrough authors of that year, and her next three books, the Hunters Ridge series, also reached bestseller status.
Sarah has also worked as a teacher, a vet nurse, a horse trainer and a magazine editor.
Her favourite place in the world is the family property, where she writes her stories overlooking mountains crisscrossed with farmland, bordered by the beauty of the Australian bush, and where, at the end of the day, she can spend time with family, friends, a good Irish whiskey and a copy of her next favourite book.

This is the second book I have read by Sarah Barrie, both set in Tasmania, and I enjoyed both immensely. Both books had an underlying criminal theme, but Devil’s Lair is also deeply mired in the occult. The core characters in Devil’s Lair also feature in Blood Tree River, but each book has a strong and feisty female character who is central to each story.
I spent the extra $3:99 to enable the audible narration feature for both books. This is a great feature for any book if it is available and the narrator is tolerable. Happily, the narrator for each of these stories was generally excellent, but I do have one complaint: Fiona Macleod, Devil’s Lair’s narrator made me cringe every time she voiced Logan Atherton, a secondary character in this book, but one who had been established and was one of the major characters in Blood Tree River.
Logan in BTR had a deep, sexy voice as was performed by Kate Hosking, but Fiona Macleod made him sound like a ninety year old! Most upsetting, but otherwise her voices, male and female were excellent.
Sarah Barrie’s descriptions of the Tasmanian bush makes one feel as if they have stepped back millennia to when the Earth was in its infancy: wild, untamed, dangerous and impossibly beautiful.
Excellent read and highly recommend.
