just finished reading

The author did a great job making the drought and heat claustrophobic. I was sucked in from the start. The narrative shifts from the present to twenty years ago, revealing more about the characters and leading to the ultimate answers. A great debut--I can't wait to read more from this author!

From the publisher:
When Federal Police investigator Aaron Falk returns to Kiewarra for the funerals, he is loath to confront the people who rejected him twenty years earlier. But when his investigative skills are called on, the facts of the Hadler case start to make him doubt this murder-suicide charge.

And as Falk probes deeper into the killings, old wounds start bleeding into fresh ones. For Falk and his childhood friend Luke shared a secret... A secret Falk thought long-buried... A secret which Luke's death starts to bring to the surface...
