Freycinet is about obsessive love and cruel murder in the Tasmanian wilderness, as Ginny O'Byrne experiences disturbing visions of torturous fates for two missing young women.In Freycinet (pronounced Frey-sin-ay), Ginny is simultaneously enchanted but also strangely horrified by the looming peaks of the Hazards mountains as she and her fiancÚ, Julian, arrive at Freycinet National Park. That night, two young women will disappear into the untamed Tasmanian wilds. Ginny is also worried by Julian's recent change of personality, and his new insistence that he and Ginny marry – immediately. Within 24 hours, Ginny will be part of a massive Search and Rescue mission, surrounded by people who may in fact be responsible for the murder of the missing women, tormented by her gruesome visions, and embroiled in an eerie atmosphere that is becoming increasingly threatening. Freycinet is Picnic at Hanging Rock meets Twin Peaks. The exquisitely beautiful surrounds of Freycinet are also the site of the thin, tenuous, shimmery line that separates memory and forgetting, permanence and transience, sanity and insanity. It is a literary murder-mystery that will stay with you long after you have closed the book.
