From the much-loved author of Shadowboxing comes a stunning debut novel in the tradition of Honey Brown, Chris Wommersley, and Kenneth Cook's Wake in Fright. If there's one thing Jesse knows when he sees it, it's trouble. And when his mum's appetite for destruction leads him and his little sister, Rachel, into the arms of Ray Crow, beneath the charm and charisma, Jesse sees the brooding violence. But Jesse's just a kid and even as he tries to save his little family, he makes a fatal error that exposes them To The kind of violence that he has sworn to protect Rachel from. Blood is an epic moral fable; a perfect blend of road movie and gothic odyssey that evokes the harshness of the Australian landscape to mirror a bleak moral universe without sanctuary. Combining an aesthetic sensibility reminiscent of Night of the Hunter with a subtle, understated prose touched with poetry, Blood is a novel about family and identity but also about the prevailing strength of innocence and love in a world of violence and genuine evil.
