After a week lost in the Australian outback, thirteen-year-old Tom Ferry makes his way back to Angel Rock. To the horror of everyone in the small town, he is alone. Exhausted and traumatized, he can't remember what happened to Flynn, his little brother. Shortly thereafter, another child of Angel Rock is found dead in Sydney, the apparent victim of suicide. But it is only with the arrival of Gibson, the investigating detective from Sydney, that the intertwining questions surrounding the fate of the two children, the silence of the townsfolk, and the mysteries of the land itself begin to unravel.

Angel Rock marks the American debut of the award-winning writer Darren Williams. By interlacing suspense with brilliantly rendered characters and evocative descriptions of the peculiar town they inhabit, he has created a novel that is immediately gripping and consistently suprising. It is a book that will be read long into the night.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reviewing the Evidence

From these events Williams builds an intense story that is part mystery novel, part suspense, part coming of age, and part searching for truth.
