Who is this please? Jessica. Jessica Weir. Im sorry, miss, but this was the last number Matthews on his way home. From work. Hes late. He should be home soon. And only the ocean breathing into the silence as if her own chest were rising and falling without fail. As if his heart were still beating. As if nothing in the world had changed. Weve found a car, miss, but theres no sign of a driver. When Jessicas partner disappears into the dark Tasmanian forest, there is of course the mystery of what happened to himthe deserted car, the enigmatic final image recorded on his phone. There is the strange circle of local women, widows of disappeared men, with their edgy fellowship and unhinged theories. And the forest itself: looming hugely over this tiny settlement on the remote tip of the island. But for Jessica there is also the tight community in which she is still a stranger and Matthew was not. What secrets do they know about her own life, that she doesnt. And why do they believe things that should notcannotbe true. For her own sanity, Jessica needs to know two things. Who was Matthew? And whoor whathas he become? Krissy Kneen is the award-winning author of memoirAffectionand fiction: An Uncertain Grace, Steeplechase, Triptych, The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine, as well as the Thomas Shapcott Award-winning poetry collection Eating My Grandmother. She has written and directed broadcast documentaries for SBS and ABC Television. Kneens writing, by turns playful and elegant, is never less than stimulating, in the literal and figurative senses of the word. Stella Prize 2017 Judgess Report Endlessly curious and inventive, provocative and inspiring. Sydney Morning Herald One of Australias hidden literary gems. With each new book, I find myself hoping that readers will finally discover her quirky, sexy and incredibly beautiful writing.

#7days7covers #covercrush #day3 This one was pretty much a cover buy, plus the fact it‘s set in Tasmania which is a part of Australia I‘m most wanting to visit. This cover is just gorgeous, another one with an amazing picture of the gloaming. I‘m a sucker for sunset/moonrise pictures🌖Oh, try turning this picture upside down, gives you a different perspective👁👁

Cinfhen Cool!!! I love this cover and the book sounds good 💕 4d

#AyUpAugust #Day15 #Missing Another Australian novel set in the wilds of Tasmania(I‘m kinda obsessed with the island state!)Jessica‘s partner Mathew disappears on his way home one night, leaving behind his car on the side of the highway & his phone with a fuzzy video of some kind of animal taken at the time he goes missing. Then she gets a visit from a group of women talking about missing partners & Tasmanian Tigers. Strange days indeed.

squirrelbrain Another one to stack! ❤️ 1mo

Another strangely beautiful Aussie story, this one set in the winter cold of southern Tasmania. Jessica works at a cave system in the national park, living in a cabin on the water with her abusive boyfriend Mathew. Until one night when he doesn‘t come home & the police find his car on the side of the highway empty. Are the women right, was he taken by something evil? #LLB19 #BookWithAPrettyCover #Pop19 #AuthorsFirstAndLastNameSameLetter

#BookMail Pt7 This is another Aussie author & based story, I ordered a few for #AussieApril but since the backup at Booktopia it‘ll have to be #AussieMay instead! This is set in the Tasmanian wilderness, in a small town on the edge of the forest, Jessica‘s partner disappears. A stranger in the community, she‘s suspicious of a circle of women who‘ve also lost their partners but with strange theories of why. Who was Matthew? And what has he become?

Freespirit I'll be interested to hear your review😊 5mo
RadicalReader This cover is stunning love it 5mo
Lizpixie @Freespirit I can‘t wait to read it #AussieAprilAndMay @RadicalReader it‘s beautiful isn‘t it. I‘d have loved to get it in hardcover but it wasn‘t in that format. I need rotating shelves that I can put all my #stunningcovers on display instead of spines📕📗📘 5mo
RadicalReader @Lizpixie rotating shelves is what all bookworms should have to display their books beauty 5mo

The atmosphere is as much a part of the story as the characters and with the setting in the woods of #tasmania there was plenty to use. This, the trauma of grief & domestic violence combine to create a #chilling #spooky and #confronting tale from the perspective of a woman who has come close to losing herself. Gritty realism combined with #paranormal to make a compelling tale that is uniquely #Australian and yet will speak to common experiences.

DarcysMom Your review sparked my interest! 9mo
wordsofbek @DarcysMom it was a very atmospheric read. Worth the hype I think. Put it this way, I love horror movies and never get freaked out. I read this book in in one night, couldn't put it down and was creeped out by some of it! Takes a bit to freak me, so I consider that exceptional writing! 😀 Let me know how you go if you read it! 9mo
DarcysMom I will have to move it up my TBR list! 9mo
