Sarah Broadhurst's view...
An accomplished and sensitive writer but of all her lovely books I don’t think she has written another as good as this, her first. It’s about an irritating city girl who takes to the backpackers’ trail and slowly has her narrow-mindedness squeezed out of her. The book changes gear once she believes she has a serial killer on her tail.
