Gathering Dark

From Australia’s most exciting and original crime writer comes another electrifying thriller, set in Los Angeles, introducing a new – and decidedly unconventional – team of ‘detectives’. Gathering Dark features four tough women – a convicted killer, her kleptomaniac former cellmate, a disillusioned LA cop who enjoys unconventional pleasures, and a feared underworld figure search for a missing girl, but little is as it first seems.
