It is Chris’s eighteenth birthday party and he and his father prepare for the big night. Friends Paul, Tommy, Lani and Julia are all coming. The relationships between the group are complicated and secrets are revealed over time.
Something happens that night and the effects of this are revealed in the group as adults, twenty years later, together with the impact on some of their parents.
The angst of adolescence is portrayed vividly and the ‘what ifs’ and the guilt in later life are palpable. Slow burning suspense with great characters and beautiful Australian coastal setting.
