Tim Winton’s In the Winter Dark is a tightly-wound psychological thriller, characterized by sparse description and rapidly escalating tension. This intense audiobook introduces listeners to four characters, living on adjacent plots of land in the Australian outback, who are brought together in terror by a series of violent incidents which cause each neighbor in turn to begin manifesting his or her darkest selves and secrets.
James Wright’s gruff, no-nonsense voice is the perfect vessel for this taut audiobook, and even as fear builds in the text, Wright’s performance remains agonizingly steady, a strong, grounded counterpoint to the dizzying spiral of violent emotions building within this gripping work.
