    Australian Fiction Thriller

    Abby lives in a small country town in NSW called Deepwater Gorge and she works as a journalist for a small local newspaper. While out going for a run along a track in the Australian bush, Abby finds a young girl who's alive but hurt and non responsive. Due to having no phone coverage because of the remote location she has to run back to get help and of course when she returns the girl has gone. The area is what we call scrub or bush in Australia it's a dense over grown mixture of native plants, ferns and trees. So I can understand just how creepy the situation was for Abby, is someone hiding behind trees looking at her and what happened to the missing girl? After contacting the local police, Abby gets the brush off and after asking a few questions she finds out that a young teenage girl is missing, her name is Shayla and has a history of running away. Her mum isn't that worried and thinks she will either return home or turn up at her dads. The police think the same thing? Abby seems to be the only one who is concerned, 20 years ago two girls bodies were found in the same area, a local man was arrested, the latest missing girl called Shayla looks a lot like one of the victims and she starts to have doubts about if they have the real killer in jail? Abby is given a hard task by her boss, she's to try and interview a famous writer called Tom Gabriel, he has just purchased an old mansion called Ravensong and he just happens to write crime novels. The weather in Australia can be fickle so while interviewing Tom it starts to pour with rain. Abby ends up having to stay at Ravensong for a couple of days due to the only road out of the property is covered by water and isn't safe to cross. While staying with Tom, she notices a strange window on one side of the house, it is covered by metal bars and she finds out that it's actually a secret room that no one knows about and not even Tom the houses new owner. While nosing around Abby finds a page for a secret diary, it's about two girls who have been locked up in the house for 5 years and kept captive by a man called Ennis. As she delves into the past, Abby discovers two girls went missing in the 1940's, they're sisters called Frankie and Lily. They had never been found and she notices that the story of the missing girls has a lot in common with the story about the two girls who went missing 20 years ago and in the same area. As Abby tries to find out what happened to the girls in the 1940's she meets an older couple called Lil and Joe. Anna Romer's book is a brilliant psychological thriller, it has so many twists and turns that you can't predict what will happen next, add the creepy Australian bush into the story and it sent shivers down my spine. You question how close is the bond between siblings, the love between and older couple, are they as nice as they seem to be and what secrets have been covered up? Tom and Abby are also getting close, start to have feeling for each other and is it possible for them to start a relationship? Under The Midnight Sky has so many layers, it keeps you guessing right to the end and I couldn't stop reading it. I really enjoyed the book and I gave it five stars.
