295 Set of 2 signed Books: Bronwyn Parry

Item: Set of two books: As Darkness Falls and Dark Country.


As Darkness Falls: Haunted by her failures, Detective Isabelle O’Connell is recalled to duty by DCI Alec Goddard to investigate the abduction of yet another child from her home town. They have only days to find the girl alive, with few clues, a town full of suspects, and a vast wilderness to search. It soon becomes a game of cat and mouse, with Bella firmly in the killer’s sights.

For Bella, this case is already personal; for Alec, his best intentions to keep it purely professional soon dissolve, and his anguish over Bella’s safety moves beyond the concern for a colleague.

Their mutual attraction leaves them both vulnerable to their private nightmares – nightmares the killer ruthlessly exploits.

As Darkness Falls was a finalist in the Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year Award 2009, in the Romantic Elements category. Prior to publication, the manuscript won the Romance Writers of America 2007 Golden Heart Award, for best unpublished Romantic Suspense.

Dark Country:

From the international award winning Australian writer Bronwyn Parry comes a gripping novel of love and suspense.

They ve considered him a murderer for eighteen years, so no one in Dungirri is surprised when Gil Gillespie returns and a woman s body is found in his car. Wearied by too many deaths and doubting her own skills, local police sergeant Kris Mathews isn t sure whether Gil is a decent man wronged by life, or a hardened criminal she should lock up. But she does know he s not guilty of this murder, because she is his alibi. Gil isn t used to feeling anything for anyone. But there s a teenager here who has his eyes a daughter he never knew existed. And the sergeant s fiery tenacity stirs his blood. He can t acknowledge either. He s made too many enemies in the Sydney Mafia and amongst corrupt cops. Kris s alibi might have saved him from a murder charge but her dedication to finding the truth has made her a target. Gil is surrounded by wilderness, but there s no place to hide, because his enemies have most of the town on their side, and they know that the one thing most punishing would be harming the few people he cares about.
