Review for Freycinet: “The ending will leave you reeling, long after you turn the final page. Absolutely fantastic.”
Freycinet is about obsession, love and cruel murder in the Tasmanian wilderness.
In Freycinet, Ginny O’Byrne is terrified by gory, clairvoyant visions of two murdered young women. The next morning two women have disappeared into the untamed Freycinet wilds. Ginny joins a massive search and rescue mission, including her suspicious-acting fiancé, Julian, to immerse herself in an atmosphere that is both eerie and increasingly threatening.
