The Silent Listener

In the cold, wet summer of 1960, 11-year-old Joy Henderson lives in constant fear of her father. She tries to make him happy but, as he keeps reminding her, she is nothing but a filthy sinner destined for Hell … Yet, decades later, she returns to the family’s farm to nurse him on his death bed. To her surprise, her ‘perfect’ sister Ruth is also there, whispering dark words, urging revenge.

The Silent Listener is an unforgettable literary suspense novel set in the dark, gothic heart of rural Australia.

‘A wickedly dark debut—haunting and unputdownable. Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child
