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.
