Publisher's Summary

When Cassie sees a job advertised for a couple to run a remote Australian farm, she thinks it will be the perfect escape for her and Graham. But trapped under the baking sun of the outback, paranoia sets in. There's no radio and they send but never receive any letters.
Their enigmatic and unusually forgiving boss Larry and his wife Mara have secrets, sedatives, and some very odd habits: a result of their isolated lifestyle or something more sinister? And there's always the sensation, in the stark brush of the red desert, that eyes are watching them....

Looked promising but ultimately dull

This is one of those books when you know things are going to go badly wrong and you can't wait for the suspense and tension to build. This is a story about a gullible and not particularly pleasant couple sweating it out in the Australian outback in the company of their strange hosts and equally odd neighbour. There is all sorts of nasty sexual tension and the threat of Mara's possible insanity is promising but unfortunately I found the storytelling unconvincing and dull. After a few hours I decided to return the book and am not at all sorry I will not get to find out what happened in the end.
