Waterstones Says

A key proponent of Australian noir, Hammer follows up the brilliant Scrublands with a menacing tale of murder and childhood secrets that cements his reputation as one of the finest thriller writers around. As a journalist hungry for the big scoop faces a stark choice between securing the story or confronting his troubled past, Silver ramps up the tension to a near unbearable degree.

A past he can't escape
As Martin draws closer to a killer, the secrets of his traumatic childhood come to the surface, and he must decide what is more important - the story or his family...
