Synopsis

It was always expected that Lachie Sinclair and his brothers would one day take over the family property, Kamilaroi. But when tragedy strikes, Lachlan blames his father and angrily renounces any future for him at Kamilaroi.

Moving to the city, Lachie joins the police force and quickly rises through the ranks. But after being injured in a gunfight he decides to go out on his own as a private investigator.

When a wealthy society woman asks Lachie to lead the search for her missing daughter, he reluctantly agrees. Early indications are that the woman's captors are hiding her in the Pilliga region, meaning Lachie must return to his roots in order to try and save her life ...

This rollicking new bush yarn from the bestselling author of Valley of the White Gold and Silver in the Sun will keep Tony Parsons' fans turning the pages well into the night.

Praise for Tony Parsons: 'A heart-warming saga of family tribulations, and an intensely powerful and moving story with a true-blue Australian flavour ...' Country News

A short story padded out too far
July 3rd, 2015
This is the first book I have read by Tony Parsons. It had the potential to be a good read, but there was no real plot to it. Yes he grew up on the land, yes he wanted to return there, he married the wrong girl, was good at his job gets the ultimate client, gets the baddies(where the book should have ended) and waffles on to get the girl too. Several chapters were him narrating his ideas over and over to various characters. Very predictable and way too padded out for me to recommend. I score it "What a load of Bollocks"

Simple Story Line
May 31st, 2015
I was looking forqardto reading a book that is set in the Pillaga. Unfortunately I was disappointed in the simple story line. After one chapter you knew exactly what the whole story would be. No surprises.

Back to the piliga by Tony Parsons.
April 4th, 2014
Well, this is the best book I gave read for a long time. On road trips to Brisbane, the Pilliga has captured my imagination because it is so different from the forest area of my Gippsland home. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were believable and reminded me of members of my own family. The battle between Lachie, his father and his brother also were reminiscent of the goings on in my family. I wanted to be Lachies mother. I want people to think of me as a 'grand lady'. Thank you for a brilliant read which taught me, entertained me and pulled at my heart strings.
