The road to Broken Hill has never been so scary: a compulsive read from one of Australia's finest writers.
Suddenly Grace knew. Her heart began to hammer; she looked around wildly. 'He's here,' she gasped. 'He's found me. He's bloody found me!'
A movement tugged at the corner of her eye and she whirled - but it was only the piece of old tyre slowly revolving where it hung from the peppercorn tree. Beyond it, the land was still.
A shocking murder wakes an ancient evil in outback New South Wales.
A truck-driver, a schoolboy, a retired bank manager and an eccentric country woman are among the people trapped on the Silver City Highway - caught in a supernatural quest for justice and a nightmarish journey that never seems to end.
The Road is a chilling page-turner from one of Australia's best storytellers.
Catherine Jinks was born in Brisbane, Queensland, in 1963. She grew up in Papua New Guinea and later spent four years studying medieval history at the University of Sydney. She now lives in Leura, New South Wales, with her husband, Peter, and their daughter.
Her many novels for children, teenagers and adults all demonstrate that Catherine Jinks is a brilliant writer who will continue to astonish us with her range and versatility.
