ONE OF US IS MISSING

B.M. Carroll's new thriller shows that there's no such thing as safety in numbers ...

Rachel and Rory Sullivan decide to celebrate making it through a difficult year by taking their teenagers, Emmet and Bridie, to their first stadium concert. By the end of the night, one of the four has vanished without a trace.

RED RIVER ROAD

Anna Downes takes us to the Coral Coast of Western Australia, where solo traveller Katy is on a mission to find her free-spirited sister, Phoebe, who disappeared along the same route a year ago. But as she drives her campervan further into the wild north, Katy realises she's not as alone as she'd first believed. Soon she is pulled into a complicated web of secrets, lies, myths and stories that force her to question everything she thought she knew about her sister.

In this nerve-shredding outback thriller, our obsessions with freedom and beauty collide with our fear of what lies in the wilderness, and the truth behind Phoebe's disappearance proves stranger and darker than Katy could ever have guessed ...

A SHADOW AT THE DOOR

Jo Dixon's new novel reveals the darkness of greed and desire where people will stop at nothing to get what they want.

After a brutal attack and the breakdown of her marriage, life has taught former TV star Remi Lucan that it's safer to not rely on anyone. Instead, she's buried herself in transforming her dilapidated sandstone house back to its former splendour, and it has been her proudest achievement. Better than her short-lived acting career. Definitely better than being a smile-on-command trophy wife. But when she runs out of money, her wealthy ex-husband tries to force the sale of the property and Remi realises her only option is to lower her defences and take in tenants.

PHEASANTS NEST

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Kate Delaney is on a girls' night out when she is propositioned by a sleazy guy in a Melbourne bar. A promising journalist with a sharp mind and keen tongue, she cuts him down to size and thinks no more of it. The Guy, however, seethes and decides to have his revenge – and Kate finds herself brutally assaulted and stuffed into a car boot being driven up the Hume Highway. Meanwhile, her friends and partner are worried – where is she? As the days pass and the police investigate her disappearance, Kate is fighting to retain her sanity and survive…

A simple premise elevated by the gripping style and sense of pervasive fear, and although there is one of those coincidences at the end which isn't quite necessary, the well-drawn characters are certainly believable. I picked the book up and basically didn't put it down until the end! Lindy

BONE LANDS

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Gus Hawkins of the Mounted Police is stationed in far west NSW. A Boer War veteran, he is scarred physically and mentally by his war experiences and the police work gives his life structure, if not peace. On the night of King George V's coronation celebrations, when he should be patrolling his stretch (but is instead bedding the local school teacher) three young people are brutally murdered. They are the children of the richest (and nastiest) pastoralist in the district, and they shouldn't have been on that particular road, so there is pressure to find the perpetrators, and Sydney detectives are called in. Gus has had dealings with the Kirkbride family, including a forbidden romance with the last surviving daughter, so it's far too personal a crime for him to leave alone even when the detectives come up with theories the pastoralist is pleased to support…

A compelling read, with a main character whose personal demons make him a very interesting study, and a well constructed narrative that catches the vastness of the western plains. Lindy

BODY OF LIES

In Sarah Bailey's fourth Gemma Woodstock thriller, the Detective Sergeant is back in her hometown of Smithson on maternity leave when a bizarre incident occurs ... A car crash victim clings to life and is rushed to hospital but can't be saved. Hours later, her corpse is stolen from the morgue. No one knows who the dead woman was or why her body was taken. Gemma is intrigued by the case but reluctant to get involved. But in the days after the body goes missing, the town is rocked by another shocking crime and Gemma can't resist joining the investigation. Gemma uncovers devastating secrets about the people she thought she knew best. The closer Gemma gets to the truth, the more danger she is in.

WHAT HAPPENED TO NINA?

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- When Nina doesn’t return home from a weekend away with her boyfriend, her mother and family are both annoyed and increasingly concerned. Simon had pressured her into skipping out on her responsibilities to her mother's business, and unbeknownst to her friends or family, Nina only reluctantly agreed to go away to his family's Vermont cabin; she is realising that her golden boyfriend is not the young man everyone thinks he is.

As her mother Leeanne becomes more and more frantic, and disbelieving of the story Simon is telling, her behaviour borders on criminal. Simon's family are rich and used to being accommodated, so they start to play dirty themselves, to protect their only son. But is he telling the truth, and do they believe his stories, or are they more worried about their reputation than about the missing girl?

A gripping and intense mystery (and it has an ending that will make you think...) Lindy

TIPPING POINT

Dinuka McKenzie's Detective Kate Miles series builds impressively with book #3.

In the sweltering heat of summer, Kate's estranged brother, Luke, returns home just before Christmas to farewell a childhood friend, dead by suicide. Within days of the funeral, another old school friend is found shot dead in the back paddock of Luke's property. When Luke is identified as a person of interest in this latest death, Kate once again finds herself in the middle of a media storm, sidelined from the case and battling accusations of conflict of interest.

Abbey's Spotify Playlists

It has long been tradition (since 1968) that no music is played in Abbey's Bookshop. Not because we don't like music, but simply because Eve and Ron Abbey were very fond of the respite from the outside world and contemplation that come with browsing in our bookshop.

If, however, you were wanting to listen to something while browsing and wanting a change from your usual, then we've compiled a few playlists that, like our curation of books, are sprinkled with the less familiar and swerve into laneways less-travelled.
