“A wickedly dark debut — haunting and unputdownable.” Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child
“Intense, intricate, emotionally devastating. This is proper Australian gothica.” Liam Pieper, author of Sweetness and Light
“Steeped in atmosphere and with taut, intricate plotting, The Silent Listener, contrary to its title, had me audibly gasping throughout.” Benjamin Stevenson, author of Either Side of Midnight
