Killing Darcy

A gripping tale of murder and prejudice from the Miles Franklin Award-winning author of Too Much Lip.

Available. Dispatched 2-3 business days

Koori teenager Darcy Mango is young, broke and on parole. His biggest problem isn’t tracking down his mob in northern New South Wales or finding a place to live. After he gets work on the Menzies horse farm, Darcy’s fate gets mixed up with a strange, old-fashioned camera found in the rainforest. What it reveals might never let him go.
