In the quiet seafaring town of Tornwich little goes unnoticed. Neighbourhood gossip spreads like wildfire, leaving few skeletons in closets. But late one night a man is shot dead in his home. A short time later another body is discovered. The town is gripped by fear. The finger of blame is pointed in all directions. False accusations and outlandish charges leave a trail of shattered relationships in their wake - and still the crimes remain unsolved, and the culprit at large. Far more than a murder mystery, The Suburbs Of Hell is a profoundly disturbing psychological drama.

Reviews

'[A] murder mystery and a meditation on the random depredations of death.' Australian Book Review 'Poetic accuracy is only one aspect of a rich talent...Mr Stow has a narrative gift as well...He is, in fact a real novelist.' Observer 'It is a rare pleasure for those of us who are already fans to have these works at our disposal...[Stow was] the most talented and celebrated Australian author of the post-White generation.' Monthly 'It should be taken as no commentary on contemporary Oz Lit that I choose Text's fistful of Randolph Stow reissues for my local favourite(s) during 2015. Their appearance reminds us that a gentle, wise, wounded, and immensely talented poet in prose once lived among us.' Geordie Williamson, Australian Book Review, Books of the Year 2015 'Fans of heady, noir-est of noir fiction, take note: Randolph Stow might be that "missing" writer you didn't know you loved.' LitReactor 'A cleverly crafted whodunit...Stow is an example of the high calibre of Australian writers of yesterday...For fans of the psychological thriller and those readers who enjoy a foray into a metaphorical tale, Stow delivers the goods.'
