The latest stunning thriller from the bestselling author of Scrublands and The Tilt.
Every paradise has its original sin
Yuwonderie's seven founding families have lorded in over their district for a century, growing ever more rich and powerful.
But now - in startling circumstances - one of their own is found dead in a ditch and homicide detectives Ivan Lucic and Nell Buchanan are set to investigate.
Could the murder be connected to the execution of the victim's friend thirty years ago - another member of The Seven - or even to the long-forgotten story of a servant girl on the brink of the Great War?
What are the secrets The Seven are so desperate to keep hidden?
With the killer still on the loose and events spiraling out of control, the closer Ivan and Nell get to discovering the truth, the more dangerous their investigation becomes. Can they crack the case before more people die?
The Seven is a compelling thriller filled with intrigue, emotional depth and an evocative sense of place - where nothing is ever quite what it seems.
