Publisher's Summary

What happens when ambition trumps the truth?

A town reeling in the wake of tragedy.

An arsonist is on the loose in Colmstock, Australia, most recently burning down the town's courthouse and killing a young boy who was trapped inside.

An aspiring journalist desperate for a story.

The clock is ticking for Rose Blakey. With nothing but rejections from newspapers piling up, her job pulling beers for cops at the local tavern isn't nearly enough to cover rent. Rose needs a story - a big one.

Little dolls full of secrets.

In the weeks after the courthouse fire, precise porcelain replicas of Colmstock's daughters begin turning up on doorsteps, terrifying parents and testing the limits of the town's already fractured police force.

Rose may have finally found her story. But as her articles gain traction and the boundaries of her investigation blur, Colmstock is seized by a seething paranoia. Soon, no one is safe from suspicion. And when Rose's attention turns to the mysterious stranger living in the rooms behind the tavern, neighbor turns on neighbor and the darkest side of self-preservation is revealed.

Butchered narration and story

This is supposed to be set in Australia. But the narrator sounds like a New Zealander who’s lived in England. It does not fit at all. Are there no Australian narrators available? Added to that, the text has either been written or edited to sound American! Words and phrases like gas station, a car's trunk, police captain, cell phone. Seriously? Once again, they don’t fit and sound alien in this context. Add to that unbelievable characters and police brutality that might have been accepted 50 years ago but would be impossible now and you have one highly forgettable, irritating novel.
