Product description

Review

A heatwave of a novel, scorching and powerful... Extraordinary * AJ Finn * Set in the parched Australian landscape, Scrublands is a brilliantly plotted thriller which reveals a town full of brooding secrets. I couldn't put this compelling debut down -- Sarah Ward * author of The Shrouded Path * It's hard not to compare Chris Hammer's Scrublands to Jane Harper's acclaimed The Dry ... [It will]capture your imagination from the first page -- Karen Hardy * The Age * Scrublands is the epic novel about rural life in Australia that we need right now ... It sits right up there with the late Peter Temple's Broken Shore, Garry Disher's Bitterwash Road and Jane Harper's The Dry, even as it extends their focus and reach ... Remarkable * Sidney Morning Herald * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
