    Australian Rural Crime has arrived, there are novels showing up everywhere claiming this as their sub genre, and SCRUBLANDS is the one that everyone is talking about Film rights have been sold, everyone s reading it, most are raving about the book.So having a contrary opinion is obviously going to go down like a lead balloon, but in this case, this reader has to beg to differ Personally, after reading, SCRUBLANDS, it s staying with me as an airport thriller style novel shoe horned into a rural A [...]

    It is, he knows full well, growing into a perfect summer story in the great tradition of Lindy Chamberlain and Schapelle Corby A heady mixture of murder, religion and sex a beautiful femme fatale to feed to the cameras, as well as perhaps the most crucial element of all mystery Why did Byron Swift open fire Who did murder the pretty young backpackers Were they raped and tortured, as alleged by the competition papers All around Australia, at barbecues and bars, at cafes and canteens, at h It is, [...]
