With Gunshot Road, Adrian Hyland has created a great crime story.
Set in the Australian outback, the hero, Emily Tempest, is a gutsy woman who sets out to solve a murder. The characters she meets along the way are the sort of people you would expect living in an isolated town in the middle of nowhere – tough, real down to earth.
This is a great read, you can almost taste the dirt, dust of the outback. The best Australian crime novel I have read in a long time.
Adrian Hyland’s first novel, Diamond Dove, won the 2007 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction.
