An atmospheric mystery taking place in a small farming community in Australia. There is a drought and the whole place is a tinderbox. Secrets abound and the past mixes with the present. A family was found shot to death. Was it murder/suicide, or something else. Falk returns to his hometown to attend the funeral of his childhood friend and finds himself swept up into the investigation. I couldn’t really warm up to the bland characters. However, the mystery held my attention.
