The Torrent: An unputdownable Australian crime thriller



‘Such a good read’ Val McDermid

What deadly secrets have been swept away by the flood?

Heavily pregnant and a week away from maternity leave, Detective Sergeant Kate Miles is exhausted. But a violent hold-up at a local fast-food restaurant means that her final days will be anything but straightforward.

When the closed case of a man who drowned in the recent summer floods is dumped in her lap, what begins as a simple, informal review quickly grows into something more complicated. Kate can either write the report that’s expected of her or investigate the case the way she wants to.

As secrets and betrayals pile up, unsettling connections to her own past and family emerge. How far is Kate prepared to push to discover the truth?

The Torrent is tense and atmospheric Australian crime at its best. Perfect for fans of Jane Harper and Chris Hammer.
