A desert highway. A remote town. A murder that won't stay hidden.
New Year's Eve, 1989. Eighteen-year-old Ingrid Mathers is hitchhiking her way to Alice Springs. Bored, hungover and separated from her friend, Joanne, she accepts a lift to the remote town of Cutters End.
July 2021. Detective Sergeant Mark Ariti is seconded to a recently reopened case, one in which he has a personal connection. Three decades ago, a burnt and broken body was discovered in scrub off the Stuart Highway, 300 kilometres south of Cutters End. Though ultimately ruled an accidental death, many people - including a high-profile celebrity - are convinced it was murder.
When Mark's interviews with the witnesses in the old case files go nowhere, he has no choice but to make the long journey up the highway to Cutters End.
And with the help of local Senior Constable Jagdeep Kaur, he soon learns that this death isn't the only unsolved case that hangs over the town....

The plot was well done and compelling, but I thought it was too slow-paced and stilted to be regarded as a thriller. This was a slow-burn novel that depicted a gruesome unsolved murder near the remote town of Cutters End thirty-two years earlier. The mystery was tantalizing, but the various strands did not flow smoothly. I felt there were too many unnecessary fillers, especially for junk food and beverages. Curried sausage legs? Is this a popular dish?
Sergeant Mark Arti, on home leave in Adelaide, is assigned a cold case that eventually leads him to the outback town of Cutters End. His marriage to a lawyer is dissolving. Two of the witnesses he interviewed were old girlfriends from High School who were backpacking near the death scene at that time. Reading the case file and witnesses' reports led to a dead end in his investigation. He joins up with police officer Jagdeep Kaur in Cutters Creek to look further into the case. In 1989, the, badly burned and broken body of Michael Denby was found near his vehicle. Denby, a local man, was considered a hero for saving the life of a famed TV personality and her mother during a flood. Denby's death was considered accidental, but she demands it to be exposed as murder. Police want it quickly resolved as an accident, and the case closed again.
Arti and Jagdeep discover some worrisome instances in the hero's past. It seems Denby's was not the only unsolved murder or disappearance in Cutters End. I thought the twists and revelations of what happened to Denby to be startling and horrifying. But was justice ever done? This should have been a terrific thriller but was not feeling the suspense and the resolution of the case bothered me. Cutters End is inclined to keep its secrets. I would have given 4 stars for the plot, but the story was too long and uneven for me.
