The Clarence Authors Series brings some of lutruwita/ Tasmania’s greatest authors to a hall near you! Come see your new favourite author live in conversation with ABC radio presenter (and self-confessed bookworm) Helen Shield and get the chance to ask them your burning questions.


The book:

When a school group of teenage girls goes missing in the remote Tasmanian wilderness, the people of Limestone Creek are immediately on alert. Three decades ago, five young girls disappeared amidst those dangerous bluffs, and the legend of ‘the Hungry Man’ still haunts locals to this day.

The girls’ teacher was knocked unconscious, so someone on the mountain was up to foul play. Jordan Murphy, the local dealer and father of missing student Jasmine, instantly becomes the prime suspect. But Detective Con Badenhorst knows that in a town like this – with corrupt cops, small-town politics, and a teenage YouTube sensation – everyone is hiding something, and bluffing is second nature.

What happened up there on the bluffs? Somebody knows – unless the local legends are true…

Make sure to visit your local library to borrow the book ahead of this session!
