Synopsis

Now includes a bonus sample of William McInnes' beautiful new novel, The Birdwatcher.

Peter Kennedy is remarkably happy with his life. Yet something is not quite right, and it started with a dream that smelt of luncheon meat.

When a developer asks Peter to assess a prime piece of Queensland real estate – the Pickersgill Peninsula Showgrounds – he jumps at the chance. It will give him time out from having to be with the family he loves. And it will take him back to his childhood home; to his parents, his twin sister, Pearl, and his brother, Gary, the TV weatherman.

Over these few days, he will come to realise that sometimes when you go back to where you came from you find out how much you actually have, and how much you could lose. He just has to make his mind up, and listen to the advice that’s given by, of all people – the King of Hot Dogs.

But will he?

The Birdwatcher will be available 29 October 2013.
