Scrublands by Chris Hammer

ScrublandsScrublands by Chris Hammer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is one of those books with a story, which if you thought things were bad they just might get even worse. Martin Scarsden is in a small outback town to report on the anniversary of a mass killing, but whilst having to battle the heat and drought he also has to contend with the fact there is more to this than just a mass killing. Using his talent for journalism Martin unpicks the history of the killing and find more about life in an unforgiving outback town. The author paints a very real picture of hardship inescapable if living in the outback - drought, heat, dust, heat and yet more heat.
