Jail Road Shadows

Brendan Murray


It’s 1964 and only weeks since the last man hanged in Western Australia but there are already demons stepping up to cast their shadows in the state’s port city. Billy (Bam) McCallum becomes a target for one of these predators after a gut-wrenching encounter that stirs his summer and of those closest to him in his tight community. He soon learns that staying alive is all about staying alert.
