The first novel in the Dungirri series from award-winning Australian romantic suspense writer, Bronwyn Parry. As Darkness Falls was the winner of a prestigious Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award.

On the edge of the outback the landscape can hide many secrets...

Haunted by her past, Detective Isabelle O'Connell is recalled to duty to investigate the abduction of a child from her home town. She and DCI Alec Goddard have only days to find the girl alive, with few clues, a town filled with suspects and a vast wilderness to search. It quickly becomes a game of cat and mouse, with Isabelle directly in the killer's sights. For Isabelle, this case is already personal. For Alec, his best intentions to keep it purely professional soon dissolve as his anguish over Isabelle's safety moves beyond concern for a colleague. Their mutual attraction leaves them both vulnerable to their private nightmares - nightmares the killer ruthlessly exploits.

As Darkness Falls, the first novel in Bronwyn Parry's thrilling Dungirri series, is followed by Dark Country and Darkening Skies.

Bronwyn Parry
Book 1
Ranger Jo Lockwood is often alone in the wilderness, and she likes it that way - until she discovers the body of a man, brutally murdered. Award-winning romantic suspense from Bronwyn Parry.

Favourite Romantic Suspense Novel, 2012 (Australian Romance Readers Association)
Romantic Suspense Finalist (Romance Writers of America, RITA Awards)
The national parks where Ranger Jo Lockwood works, on the edge of the New South Wales outback, are untamed stretches of dry forest cut through with wild rivers. She's often alone, and she likes it that way - until she discovers the body of a man, brutally murdered, in a vandalised campground.

Detective Senior Sergeant Nick Matheson knows organised crime and gang violence from the inside out. He's so good at undercover work that his colleagues aren't sure which side he's really on. His posting to Strathnairn is supposed to be a return to normal duties, but the murder victim in the campground is only the first of Jo's discoveries.

As Jo and Nick uncover drugs and a stash of illegal weapons, the evidence points towards locals - young men already on the wrong side of the law. But as far as Nick's concerned, it doesn't add up. When the body count starts mounting - each brutally punished before death - he becomes convinced that one person is behind the killings, one person is manipulating the men to commit horrific crimes, forming them into his own private drug-dealing cartel.

Jo has seen the man's face, and now she's his next target. Nick's determined to protect her, but trapped in the rugged outback he and Jo will have to act quickly if they are going to survive.

Book 1 in the riveting Goodabri series. STORM CLOUDS is Book 2; SUNSET SHADOWS is Book 3.
