A Little Bird: A Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A homecoming snares a young woman in a dangerous tangle of lies, secrets, and bad blood in this gripping novel by the bestselling author of An Accusation.
Running from a bad relationship, journalist Jo Sharpe heads home to Arthurville, the drought-stricken town she turned her back on years earlier. While some things have changed - her relationship with her ailing, crotchety father, her new job at the community newspaper - Jo finds that her return has rekindled the grief and uncertainty she experienced during her childhood following the inexplicable disappearance of her mother and baby sister.
Returning to Arthurville has its unexpected pleasures, though, as Jo happily reconnects with old friends and makes a few new ones. But she can’t let go of her search for answers to that long-ago mystery. And as she keeps investigating, the splash she’s making begins to ripple outward - far beyond the disappearance of her mother and sister.
Jo is determined to dig as deep as it takes to get answers. But it’s not long before she realizes that someone among the familiar faces doesn’t want her picking through the debris of the past. And they’ll go to any lengths to silence the little bird before she sings the truth.

It started very slow, with Jo, now in her thirties, returning to her home town to live with her Dad after being a jornalist with a big paper in Sydney, her job and relationship went South. Working for the local paper that her mother did over 20 years ago before she and her little sister went missing.
This was a well written thriller, which did not become a thriller until over half way through, and handled by Ms James very well. Good story, good characters, well worth the time. Recommended if you like Aussie Outback thrillers.

Country NSW came across though, pity the plot didnt!
A useful guide for others to try
The first Wendy James book i have read. Initially I thought it might not be for me (unlike my usual psychological thrillers) but found i like her writing style and soon got hooked! Didn't want to put it down!
