Lee and Victoria weren’t the only ones to love “Headland” by John Byrnes… Here is what the QBD crew thought:
A major new voice in Australian crime fiction has entered the scene… John Byrne’s “Headland” is here.
When a coastal town is evacuated after record floods, three young police officers are left behind… in danger. Constables Ellie Cameron and Larissa Brookes are young women struggling to show their worth as police officers under a misogynistic sergeant, and Detective Constable Craig Watson is a young man with a damaged past and an uncertain future. Their drowning town of Gloster holds a secret that someone is prepared to murder for. There is a killer in the flood water… and he needs them dead.
This taut and compelling story kept us on the edge of our seats and continually guessing “what’s next?”. If you’re a crime-fiction enthusiast, this extraordinary book deserves to be on your bookshelf.
