it was ok
bookshelves: australian-crime, historical-fiction
Read from January 09 to 10, 2012

This novel is not as engaging as the premise suggests. It promises a grand scope that is never realized, and the mystery at the centre of the narrative plays second fiddle to the musings of the main character and his 'relationship' with a spectral girl. I wanted to hear more about the era and Australia at the time.
