With their father there’s always a catch.... Colt Jenson and his younger brother, Bastian, have moved to a new, working-class suburb.
The Jensons are different. Their father, Rex, showers them with gifts - toys, bikes, all that glitters most and makes them the envy of the neighbourhood.
To Freya Kiley and the other local kids, the Jensons are a family from a magazine and Rex a hero - successful, attentive, attractive, always there to lend a hand. But to Colt he’s an impossible figure in a different way: unbearable, suffocating. Has Colt got Rex wrong, or has he seen something in his father that will destroy their fragile new lives?
Sonya Hartnett’s new novel for adults is an unflinching and utterly compelling work.

There were too many loose ends at the conclusion of this book. Good story but I expected more-it's like we're being set up for a sequel. If so, I would read it.
