Dave Truman is in trouble. He is haunted by a secret trauma in his past that made him flee England for Australia, where he still lives. And now his violent older brother Tony, whom Dave has avoided for seventeen years because Tony is linked to that trauma, has come to stay.
'Where There Is Darkness' is a gripping novel about an ordinary man with a dark secret and what happens when his past catches up with him.
Taking us from the white glare of an Australian summer to the rainy streets of 1980s Britain, it tells the story of two brothers bound by tragedy and deceit, of a family corroded by lies and evasions, and of how a moment of teenage stupidity can have devastating lifelong consequences.
'Where There Is Darkness' is contemporary fiction laden with intrigue and with a compelling mystery at its heart. Part psychological thriller, part love story and part family drama, it explores the darkness of human nature and the possibility of redemption.
