I really loved this book and how it told of the atrraction between two people and although I am male I cried like a baby. This is the only book that has done this to me. I will treasure this for ever.

Reviewer Joanne wrote:
Brilliant idea, mediocre execution. Disher fails to devolop characters and situations, however he presents readers with an intriguing storyline.

Unknown reviewer wrote:
Disher uses very simple language for effect but jumps into the the depths of his characters far too quickly. not much development as i would have liked.

Garry Disher manages to capture every emotion and every character's story in this fabulous book. I have read it a number of times, yet still grip my chair in suspense and cry at the sad bits. It leaves a wonderful effect on anyone.

Book description:

In 1946, in the northern Australian fishing town of Broome, Hart Penrose remembers. He remembers his parents ­ his silent English mother and bluff Australian father. He remembers the storm that tore open is leg, and his sister Alice, whose exuberance and strength brought him out of despair. He remembers the racism and hatred that roiled Broome in the days before WW2, the unwarranted suspicions of the native Japanese that pulled the town apart. Most of all, he remembers Misty Sennosuke, the warm and beautiful girl next door, the girl he loved, the one he betrayed.
