AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What did Jodie feel as she jogged on Deadman's Beach that winter's morning? Was it only the stinging bite of the wind-whipped sand? And why did the wildly foaming sea seem to call: You will fail. Yes, you will fail. Who can answer? If not Jodie herself, then perhaps the ghost of Deadman's Beach? A story of the tragic consequences of lost love.'

According to the Courier Mail (Brisbane), "All the stories [in the After Dark series] are strong, dramatic and chilling. They are rich in symbolism and meaning. They are well crafted and feature a range of story structures from simple narratives to complex multi-layered plots. After Dark offers the promise of heart-stopping, spine-tingling drama and it doesn't disappoint." Number in series: 27
