Summary
'This brilliantly crafted crime novel takes a plunge into driving thriller territory. A writer to watch' Starred review, US Publishers Weekly 'I read Second Sight like I was on fire. I couldn't get enough of Eliza Carmody' Sarah Bailey, bestselling author of The Dark Lake 'You won't put this book down until the final page is done' Adelaide Advertiser'Brilliant' Emily Maguire'Another engrossing read by one of our most talented crime writers.' Anna George 'The tension is high, the pace rapid and the plot primed to keep the pages turning.' The Australian 'A beautifully crafted tale of treachery, tangled perceptions, and family dysfunction. Clifford masterfully packages skewed realities and hard-held grudges in a ride that breathlessly picks up speed until its last shocking conclusion. Impossible to put down!' Julie McElwain A fugitive in the present. A runaway in the past. Eliza Carmody returns home to the country to work on the biggest legal case of her career. The only problem is this time she's on the 'wrong side' – defending a large corporation against a bushfire class action by her hometown of Kinsale. On her first day back Eliza witnesses an old friend, Luke Tyrell, commit an act of lethal violence. As the police investigate that crime and hunt for Luke they uncover bones at The Castle, a historic homestead in the district. Eliza is convinced that they belong to someone from her past. As Eliza becomes more and more entangled in the investigation, she is pulled back into her memories of youthful friendships and begins to question everyone she knows ... and everything she once thought was true. Praise for Second Sight 'Aoife Clifford has absolutely nailed it again. The characters were beautifully drawn and the small town intrigues kept me turning pages to the big reveal at the end. Brava!' Fiona Barton, New York Times bestselling author of The Widow 'A compelling story about secrets, small town loyalties, and lies' Emma Viskic 'A shrewdly paced account of a young litigation lawyer's investigations into a suspicious fire and her own troubled history.' Garry Disher Praise for All These Perfect Strangers 'A stunning debut' Sydney Morning Herald 'Unputdownable' Marie Claire 'Gripping and compelling' Jane Harper
