            A teacher himself, the author clearly understood what excites and interests children. This is a story, with strong, sympathetic characters, but it also raises timeless and profound questions. It is a catalyst for discussion and analysis, not only concerning capabilities of humans... for good and evil and the fragility of moral inhibition, but beyond.

Is she hiding something, and if so, what? And why does Fawley keep getting the feeling it's related to a case from his past, a case he's spent years trying to forget? And then another girl disappears, and Adam no longer has a choice: he has to face his demons, whatever the cost, professional or personal. Because unless he does, this victim may not be coming back . . . ___________________________________ WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT CARA HUNTER 'Your next riveting, twisty read' Shari Lapena 'A real gripper of a read' Peter James 'Fast paced and a fantastic cast of characters.

            In this joyful novel, our narrator is Charles Dickens's tenth child, Edward Bulwer Lytton Dickens, known as Plorn. Sent, as his brother Alfred had been before him, at sixteen years of age, to Australia to learn to 'apply himself', we follow his early Australian adventures in outb...ack NSW learning to become a man from the most diverse and toughest of men. Part of Dickens' motivation was to separate these younger of his children from the Dickens family schism, where Charles had expelled his wife from the family home, keeping her sister Georgie there to run the household and taking up with the actress Ellen Tiernan. Plorn arrived in Melbourne in late 1868 carrying a terrible secret. He has never read a word of his father's work. After a very brief stopover he is sent out to become a gentleman stockman on a 2000 square mile station in remotest, semi-arid parts of NSW. Here he inevitably gets enmeshed in a tribe named the Paakintji and various other folk, colonists, colonial-born, ex-convicts, ex-soldiers, and very few women - though he is struck by each one he does encounter. Plorn did not expect he would encounter the same veneration of his father and familiarity with his work in Australia that was rampant in England. Against this backdrop, and featuring cricket tournaments, horse-racing, bushranging, sheep droving, shifty stock and station agents, frontier wars and first encounters with Australian women we follow Plorn, and sometimes his brother Alfred, through wonderful adventures as he works to apply himself. This is Tom Keneally in his most familiar terrain. Taking historical figures and events and reimagining them with verve, compassion and humour. It is a romp.
