Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

Night falls. In a lonely valley called the Sink, four people prepare for a quiet evening. Murray Jaccob sees a moving shadow in his orchard. Across the swamp, his neighbour Ronnie watches her lover leave and feels her baby roll inside her. And on the verandah of the Stubbses house, a small dog is torn screaming from its leash by something unseen. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Critic Reviews

"This is Winton at his most disciplined, most distilled - and its an unforgettable story, told with the simplicity that only a consummate artist can achieve." (Sun Herald)
