Under the Midnight Sky

This book was so good, it was gripping and intense.

The story is set in remote Australian bushland and is centred around a local newspaper journalist Abby Bardot and a reclusive crime writer Tom Gabriel. Abby is hoping for an interview with Tom who has recently bought the old mansion near Deepwater Gorge known as Ravensong.

Out running in the bush early morning, Abby finds an unconscious teenage girl with a head wound, she goes off to call an ambulance but when she returns with help the girls body has disappeared.

Twenty years earlier a number of young girls had been murdered or disappeared in this same bushland area including Abby's best friend who was abducted and killed when she was twelve, this has haunted Abby’s dreams ever since and in her mind she feels responsible for her death.

Abby is tormented by her own painful memories as a twelve year old when she was abducted and locked away in a dark cave or was it a cave? She has always wanted to write about the murders in her town and begins to delve into the past when she finds an unexpected link in Tom's house, which unexpectedly draws out the killer.

The perfect psychological thriller, it was so intriguing and the characters were cleverly portrayed. There were so many buried secrets and a dramatic climax. I found the author, Anna Romer has an ingenious story telling ability because I didn’t want to put this book down.
