My Review
It is rare to find a novel that is simply unputdownable.  This novel counts as one of the those.  Hayland's mastery of language creates some wonderful writing throughout the novel which made it a delight to read.  It helps to create some great and engaging characters as well.  The writing maybe short, sharp and terse, much like hard boiled novels of old but it is done really well.  The dialogue is excellent too.

Tempest by name, Tempest by nature Emily is a force to contend with as a single minded individual who is also struggling to maintain the balance between her Aborigine culture and living and working with the white man.  Hayland really draws into the Aborigine culture in this novel in a similar way that Craig Johnson drew you into the Indian culture in his Longmire novels.

It is a great plot too and although not that twisty and turning it has a lot of action in it which definitely keeps the pages turning.
