I’m proud to announce that my new book The Man In The Water, published by UQP, is available for pre-order!

When 16-year-old Shaun discovers a dead body in the lake of a quiet mining town in outback Queensland, he immediately reports it to the police. But when he returns to the site with the constable, the body is gone. Shaun's father drowned a few years ago, and now his mum and the authorities questions whether he saw a body at all.

Determined to show the town the truth, Shaun and his best friend, Will, open their own investigation. But what they discover is far more sinister than a mining mishap or a murder, and reveals a darkness below the surface of their small mining town.

“‘The reader in me wanted to race right through this to solve the mystery. The writer in me thought I should put the brakes on and appreciate the fine writing. The reader won. I had to know. Had to. That’s how good the writing is.” Nick Earls
