Winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Novel (2007). Emily Tempest has been away from the outback for a long time - uni, travel, dead-end jobs...finding trouble all over the world. Now she's back at Moonlight Downs, the community where she grew up, half in the Aboriginal world, half in the white. And true to form, there's trouble. Within hours of her arrival an old friend is brutally murdered and mutilated and an old enemy is the only suspect...until Emily starts asking questions. Take a nail-biting mystery, an epic setting and a heroine with a talent for stirring things up. Throw in an affectionate flogging of outback Australia's melanoma-encrusted hide - and Diamond Dove just might be the wittiest and most gripping debut of the year.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Absolutely beautiful ... a witty, angry and moving book. This is a breathtaking audacious debut novel' Reviewing the Evidence. * Reviewing the Evidence *
'An amazingly accomplished first novel with a memorable heroine. Hyland's hard-hitting prose has conjured up not only the atmosphere but the spirit of this remote little community and its colourful inhabitants. He's a definite writer to watch' Sunday Telegraph. * Sunday Telegraph *
'This debut packs a real wallop. Hyland spins an epic and ambitious mystery set against the vast backdrop of Central Australia' Vogue. * Vogue *
