When insurance whiz Wilson Taylor discovers that his beloved daughter has been pronounced brain dead after almost drowning on an Australian beach, and that the police are calling it an accident, he is determined to mount his own investigation. Who is the sinister blackmailer threatening him? Why did Anna’s mysterious companion run away?
Interspersed with Anna’s own account of her travels, Wilson embarks upon a quest that will take him far from his daughter’s bedside deep into the Australian bush. But how much does he really know – or want to know – about his child?
In this sparsely written yet compelling novel, Christopher Wakling explores relationships, individual choices and the subjective nature of truth and perception.
