Recensioner i media

This deliciously horrific Australian thriller, set in 1900, could be seen as an anti-picnic cautionary tale. * Observer * Written in a beautifully haunting style that drew me in. -- Esther McKay * Sun Herald (Australia) * A sinister tale...laced with touches of other-worldliness * Guardian *
