If you’re searching for your next page turner, make sure you enter this month’s amazing book competition to win 1 of 17 copies of Fleur McDonald’s new rural fiction, Rising Dust.

Detective Dave Burrows returns in another breathtaking tale of rural suspense.

After the family’s devastating tragedy, Detective Dave Burrows is crystal clear that his wife, Mel, is no longer interested in their marriage.

Before Dave can talk to Mel, he and his partner, Bob Holden, are sent to investigate a suspected sheep stealing at a station north of Carnarvon, where they very quickly realise that this crime is a lot more than just stock theft.

As a ferocious tropical storm floods the airstrip and uncovers more than anyone expected, Dave and Bob find themselves isolated, outnumbered and in extraordinary danger. Dave has to confront the guilt and trauma of his past before he can move forward. And perhaps there’s no way out this time.

‘Fleur McDonald is a master of the rural suspense novel, her characters and storyline crackle with authenticity.’ Family Circle 

‘Nobody does rural fiction quite like Fleur McDonald.’ Weekly Times

  • I love to read books written about places I’ve been to.

  • I love books set in Australia’s unique outback.

  • Absolutely love Australian thrillers set in rugged Australian settings.

  • My mum is an avid book reader and loves anything about rural Australia. This book looks like an absolute ripper!

  • Heading out on first holiday in over 2 years and I can’t wait. I need to fill some of that leisure time and this would be the perfect match for sun, fun and relaxation.

  • going to have some time so need more to read while wait for my dad at the hospital

  • Reading Is my way to escape, relax and reset after a long week. It’s my guilty Sunday pleasure. I enjoy thrillers, mysteries and the odd romance depending on my mood

  • Reading is my escape from the real world and I’ve only read one of Fleur McDonald’s books and thoroughly enjoyed it!

  • Ooh not in my hot little hands, rather in Mum’s hot little hands. She has chosen it to read (she loves Fleur’s books) and will absolutely scold us if we purchase it for Mother’s Day and her birthday. “Don’t waste your money on buying me a Mother’s Day present”. She will wait until the local library finally gets a copy, she taught us stubbornness, frugality and patience :). I used to buy them and neglect the source, now I’ve promised not too (though so much easier to purchase). So please make mum happy and pick her! Thanks

  • A marvellous signature of literary artistry to captivate my heart where suspense, mystery and uniqueness is loved and wondrously part of every page turning moment we will simply adore as such bold and creative stories leave us inspired, fascinated and wanting more.

  • It sounds like the perfect escape from the everyday!

  • Just finished Deception Creek, and Fleur McDondald is a new favourite author, and can not wait to find out what Detective Dave Burrows is up to in this novel Rising Dust, I just know it will be a great read.
