Critical Praise

“Temple’s novel racked up the awards in Australia, and it’s easy to see why: this deeply intelligent thriller starts slowly, builds inexorably, and ends unforgettably.”

——Keir Graff, Booklist

“I'll try to keep it to a low roar, but The Broken Shore is a real novel. Make no bones about it, this is a rich, complex, and very good book. I can't wait to read the next one.”

——James Crumley

“A towering achievement . . . Indispensable.”

Maxim Jakubowski, The Guardian
