一樁被認為謀殺而後自殺的家庭悲劇,如何揭露埋藏在20年前的秘密?

一個看上去人畜無害的人,會犯下殺人然後自殺的罪嗎?

澳洲面臨近百年來最大的旱災,Kiewarra這個小鎮已有兩年沒有下雨,不安與緊張終於在Hadler家族謀殺案後爆發了,大家都認為是Luke Hadler先殺了妻小然後再畏罪自殺的。

墨爾本警官Aaron Falk回到Kiewarra,只為了參加兒時好友Luke的葬禮,卻也因此無奈地加入案件偵查。在撥開層層懸疑的過程中,Aaron不得不面對20年前充滿偏見的故鄉將他逼走的痛苦往事,因為大家都懷疑他與Luke的兒時玩伴Ellie的死和他脫不了干係。如今,Arron在調查Luke”罪行”的同時,深埋在20年前的秘密也將浮上檯面…。

'One of the most stunning debuts I've ever read...Read it!' David Baldacci

'A compulsive read' Kate Hamer, bestselling author of The Girl in the Red Coat

WHO REALLY KILLED THE HADLER FAMILY?

I just can't understand how someone like him could do something like that.

Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, it hasn't rained in small country town Kiewarra for two years. Tensions in the community become unbearable when three members of the Hadler family are brutally murdered. Everyone thinks Luke Hadler, who committed suicide after slaughtering his wife and six-year-old son, is guilty.

Policeman Aaron Falk returns to the town of his youth for the funeral of his childhood best friend, and is unwillingly drawn into the investigation. As questions mount and suspicion spreads through the town, Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him twenty years earlier. Because Falk and Luke Hadler shared a secret, one which Luke's death threatens to unearth. And as Falk probes deeper into the killings, secrets from his past and why he left home bubble to the surface as he questions the truth of his friend's crime.
