He didnt really know whether hed seen anything at all, though. Maybe an abduction? Maybe just a stressed-out father.Detective Bart Moy, newly returned to the country town where his ailing, cantankerous father still lives, finds nothing.

As far as he can tell no one in Guilderton is missing a small boy. Still, he looks deeper into the butchers story - after all, he had a son of his own once.But when the boy does turn up, silent, apparently traumatised, things are no clearer. Who is he? Where did he come from and what happened to him?For Moy, gaining the boys trust becomes central not just to the case but to rebuilding his own life. From the wreckage of his grief, his dead marriage and his fractured relationship with his father may yet come a chance for something new.A mystery, a meditation on fatherhood, a harrowing examination of love and loss: a new departure in literary crime from Stephen Orr.Stephen Orr is the author of several published works of fiction and non-fiction.

His novel Times Long Ruin was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and longlisted for the Miles Franklin Award in 2011. He lives in Adelaide.textpublishing.com.auEloquent, unusual, bold.
