Description

THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STANDALONE NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BROKEN SHORE. 'An Iron Rose shows just how good he is ...the characters are brilliantly realised' Sunday Telegraph When men in police uniforms came to execute me on the roadside, beside dark fields, it was a definite sign that my new life was over. A regular at the local pub, a mainstay of the footy team, Mac Faraday is a man with a past living the quiet life of a country blacksmith. But when his best friend Ned Lowey is found hanged, Mac - who has learned the hard way never to accept things at face value - isn't convinced he committed suicide, and starts asking questions. As Mac's search for answers pushes deeper into the past, it resurrects the terrifying spectre of what he calls his 'old life', forcing him to turn to long-discarded skills not only to discover why his best friend died, but also to save his own life. Want more Peter Temple? Then maybe suggest trying his second standalone novel, Shooting Star ...
