Scrublands by Chris Hammer – Our Review


Our Review…The shattered closed-knit dusty town community of Riversend are baffled by the slaughter of their town’s most upstanding citizens by their caring and compassionate young priest. When a war-shocked journalist is assigned to take a fresh look at how the townsfolk are coping a year on from the tragedy, he uncovers a web of half-truths and deceit, where everyone has something to hide.
If you adored The Dry (Jane Harper), this is the book for you. Moving at lightning speed, this powerful Australian mystery populated by great memorable characters takes you to entirely unexpected places. A truly sensational read, I adored this book. Chris has serious credentials…see his bio below.
