Antonia Murphy and family are definitely unlikely farmer transplants from San Francisco to Purua, New Zealand. There are plenty of adventures in rural life and not the gentle, pastoral life they were expecting. Some laugh out loud incidents keep the story flowing smoothly.

This is the first book by this author that I have read but I don’t think it will be the last. Whilst you catch on fairly early as to WHAT has happened it is as the story unfurls that you get the details as to the HOW and the WHY – both becoming creepily apparent. A well-written book – not perfect – but well worth a read.

Push past the esoteric backdrop, and you will discover a uniquely suspenseful (and disturbing) debut novel. Reading it is like circling in a basin, ever faster with each lap, until, on the last line of the last page, you are finally and forever sucked down the plug hole.
