Deadly secrets lurk in a tiny country town in this suspenseful story by Romance Writers of America award-winning author Bronwyn Parry.

For eighteen years, a black hole in Mark Strelitz's memory has concealed the truth: that he was the driver of a car in which a young woman died. Now he needs to set the record straight.

Not much would drag investigative reporter Jennifer Barrett back to her hometown of Dungirri - except new questions about her cousin's death. She knows too well the whiff of corruption and cover-up, and she's determined to find the truth behind Mark's startling revelations.

But someone is trying to keep Mark silent and stop the investigation before it even begins.

DARKENING SKIES is the third novel in Bronwyn Parry's award-winning Dungirri series. The other two novels in the series are AS DARKNESS FALLS and DARK COUNTRY; all are page-turning Australian fiction at its very best.

**Includes bonus chapters of Bronwyn's latest thriller, SUNSET SHADOWS**

From the international award-winning Australian writer Bronwyn Parry comes a gripping novel of love and suspense - the second in her Dungirri series. Dark Country was voted Favourite Romantic Suspense Novel by the Australian Romance Readers Association.

They've considered him a murderer for eighteen years, so no one in Dungirri is surprised when 'Gil' Gillespie returns and a woman's body is found in his car. Wearied by too many deaths and doubting her own skills, local police sergeant Kris Mathews isn't sure whether Gil is a decent man wronged by life, or a hardened criminal she should lock up. She does know he's not guilty of this murder, though, because she is his alibi.

Gil isn't used to feeling anything for anyone. But there's a teenager here who has his eyes - a daughter he never knew existed. And the sergeant's fiery tenacity stirs his blood. He can't acknowledge either. He's made too many enemies in the Sydney Mafia and amongst corrupt cops. Kris's alibi might have saved him from a murder charge but her dedication to finding the truth has made her a target.

Gil is surrounded by wilderness, but there's no place to hide because his enemies have most of the town on their side, and they know that the one thing most punishing would be harming the few people he cares about.

The other novels in Bronwyn Parry's gripping Dungirri series are As Darkness Falls and Darkening Skies.
