'Compelling, original and brilliantly executed - an excellent thriller from a new master of Australian noir' - Charles Cumming, author of A Foreign Country 

'Silver is the perfect sequel to Scrublands - dark, twisty and atmospheric, with writing so real you can almost feel the blistering heat of the Australian summer. I savoured every page, I didn't want it to end' - Lisa Hall, author of Between You and Me
