Kyle Perry is a counsellor and youth worker who has worked extensively in high schools, youth shelters and drug rehabs. In his work he encounters stories and journeys that would fill a hundred books. Kyle’s mother grew up in the foothills of the Great Western Tiers, in Tasmania’s heartland, where his grandfather was called on for search and rescues in the mountains. Kyle himself has been lost in Tasmanian mountains twice, and once used ripped pages of a journal stuck on branches to find his way back out. He has also seen strange things in the bush that defy explanation and are best not spoken about. Kyle divides his time between his small country hometown in Tasmania’s North West and Hobart. The Bluffs is his debut novel.
The Bluffs: At the bottom of the world, there is an island. It is a land of rugged wilderness, of ice and snow and blistering heat, of the oldest trees on earth … They say extinct tigers still roam there. They say other things roam, too. When a school group of teenage girls go missing in the remote wilderness of Tasmania’s Great Western Tiers, the people of Limestone Creek are immediately on alert…
Perfect for fans of Jane Harper and Chris Hammer, The Bluffs is an unforgettable gritty contemporary crime about the evil things good natured people do in a claustrophobic Tasmanian town. Eerily dark and compelling, it will grip you from its atmospheric first pages to the shocking climax.
‘Tense, atmospheric and unsettling, this book will stay with you long after you turn the last page, and long after you turn out the lights.’ – Christian White,
bestselling author of The Nowhere Child.
‘Scrublands meets Picnic at Hanging Rock in The Bluffs by a thrilling new talent in Australian rural crime fiction.’
