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. Download and start listening now!

    " I'm a sucker for Tim Winton's writing. It's interesting to see how he has evolved as a writer from his early days. Great sense of place and character with this book. Great length too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 12/24/2013

    " Good sense of place, a haunting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 12/19/2013

    " Hmmm... I had trouble with this one. I just kept thinking how I could use this to teach students about building suspense, rather than getting absorbed into the story. As always though, it is full of Winton's dark portraits of people and their inner workings, which I love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 12/18/2013

    " I found this chilling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney Johnston | 12/10/2013

    " A slim chilly little horror/mystery story, delivered in a plain setting and plainer language. Not a patch on Winton's "Breath', which is one of the best books I read this year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 12/8/2013

    " Strong, early effort from Winton that captures rural dignity and intelligence without lingering on the bleak. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Justus | 12/4/2013

    " Nothing about this particularly excited me. Luckily it is a brief book so the feeling of "meh" didn't last long. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 8/22/2013

    " An audio book. The Aussie aren't exactly like us. May try another book by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Jon Kershaw | 8/2/2013

    " Despite an ending that suffered somewhat of 'Stephen King' syndrome, I found this novel to be extremely engaging and shows once again why Winton is one of the great Australian authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 6/28/2013

    " Wow. How could you live with yourself after that? Really enjoyed this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg Shooter | 12/10/2012

    " 'In the Winter Dark' is my favourite Winton novel. It conjures the Australian Landscape like no other book. It's spooky undertones will never leave you once you've entered into the winter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyse | 11/13/2012

    " I really liked this book, I loved how Winton captured some of the pure panic some people must feel in moments of life or death, and the way they deal with the aftermath. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 10/12/2012

    " I read this in one shot. It was dark and terrifying on what it revealed about people, and how their brokenness is just as horrific as any monster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 7/5/2012

    " I usually love Tim Winton's books but this attempt at horror left me a bit befuddled. Not his genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Masonthomson | 12/10/2011

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Tim Winton does a great job of keeping you engaged throughout this whole novel. The kind of book you find very hard to put down. Absolutely loved the way it ended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simone Camilleri | 10/8/2011

    " Very dark and grim but still an amazingly well written story that keels you wanting more "
