AS DARKNESS FALLS is set in the isolation of a small town on the edge of the New South Wales outback. Haunted by her failures, country police officer Detective Isabelle O'Connell is recalled to duty by Detective Alec Goddard to investigate the abduction of yet another child from her old home town.
With the killer playing a game of cat and mouse and targeting Bella, they have only days in which to find the girl alive, but they have very few clues, a town filled with suspects, and a vast wilderness to search. For Bella, this case is already personal and for Alec his best intentions to keep it purely professional soon dissolve. Their mutual attraction leaves them both vulnerable to their private nightmares nightmares the killer ruthlessly exploits.
