Sugar Town

The most challenging value people can commit to is the truth…

On the tropical coast of Queensland, Sugar Town's annual harvest festival is a time for restraint to be set aside; for the fanciful and the mischievous to be indulged. But when innocent questions elicit shocking and unexpected answers, the mischief turns, once again, to malevolence which will hold a reckoning to be delivered...

The denial of Sugar Town’s painful past has created a common recourse. Yet when an ambiguous stranger visits Sugar Town, questions are raised and the community is faced with its greatest challenge yet… uncovering the truth of the past.

When a thirteen-year-old girl stumbles upon Sugar Town’s secret conspiracies, new crimes are committed to cover the old, while ageing indifferences are provoked. The most dangerous aspect of Sugar Town’s community is its silence…

“Wonderfully engaging and menacing with absorbing characters and plot that keeps the pages flicking past and my breath captured until the end…” Patrick, Indie Book reviewer
