The Stoning

The Stoning is an atmospheric page-turner, a brilliant crime novel with superb characters, but also a nuanced and penetrating insight into the heart of a country intent on gambling with its soul.

‘In the tradition of Sarah Thornton’s Lapse, Chris Hammer’s Scrublands and, of course, Jane Harper’s The DryThe Stoning grips from its disturbing opening to its high-octane showdown.’
—FIONA HARDY, Books+Publishing 

‘A crime novel with a difference; gritty and menacing with a terrific sense of place. A highly relevant examination of racism in an outback town.’
—EMMA VISKIC, author of the Caleb Zelic crime series

‘I was unable to put this book down—it’s utterly compelling. In George Manolis, you have a detective in the tradition of Chandler’s Marlowe, yet entirely right for the times in which we live now – he’s superbly written.’
—WYL MENMUIR, author of The Many, nominated for the 2016 Man Booker Prize

A struggling cop, long-buried secrets, a town gone awry—this is outback noir with the noir dialled right up. I loved it.’
—CHRIS HAMMER, bestselling author of Scrublands
