'A brilliantly twisty yarn for all fans of Aussie noir.' New Idea When a school group of teenage girls goes missing in the remote Tasmanian wilderness, the people of Limestone Creek are immediately on alert. Three decades ago, five young girls disappeared amidst those dangerous bluffs, and the legend of 'the Hungry Man' still haunts locals to this day.

The girls' teacher was knocked unconscious, so someone on the mountain was up to foul play. Jordan Murphy, the local dealer and father of missing student Jasmine, instantly becomes the prime suspect. But Detective Con Badenhorst knows that in a town like this - with corrupt cops, small-town politics, and a teenage YouTube sensation - everyone is hiding something, and bluffing is second nature.

What happened up there on the bluffs? Somebody knows - unless the local legends are true...

'Tense, atmospheric and unsettling, this book will stay with you long after youtube the last page and long after you turn out the lights.' Christian White 'This atmospheric, scenery-rich crime tale embodies both the beauty and brutality of nature - especially human nature . . . The Bluffs establishes Perry as a fierce new talent.' Apple Books 'The narrative races along, pulling the reader from page to page with a freight-train momentum that starts with the first word and ends with the final full stop.' Sunday Examiner 'A thrilling and immersive debut...

The Bluffs manages to tell a riveting story that will give even a seasoned thriller reader goosebumps.' Better Reading

Kyle Perry is a counsellor who has worked extensively in high schools, youth shelters and drug rehabs. In his work he encounters stories and journeys that would fill a hundred books. Kyle's mother grew up in the foothills of the Great Western Tiers, in Tasmania's heartland, where his grandfather was called on for search and rescues in the mountains. Kyle himself has been lost in Tasmanian mountains twice, and once used ripped pages of a journal stuck on branches to find his way back out. He has also seen strange things in the bush that defy explanation and are best not spoken about. Kyle divides his time between his small country hometown in Tasmania's North West and Hobart. The Bluffs is his debut novel.
