Head of Zeus
Water Music
Water Music by Margie Orford
 Clare Hart, 5

It's Rosa.
There's trees outside. Get me help.

A terrified young woman leaves a phone message for her grandfather. He promised he'd protect her, but now she's disappeared.

A little girl, only three years old, is found half-dead on a deserted mountainside. No one has reported her missing. Someone left her there to die.

The two cases seem unconnected, but Dr Clare Hart can see a terrifying pattern emerging. Can she find Rosa? Or is it already too late?

'Margie Orford is world-class. This is crime writing at its very best'
Deon Meyer
'Orford writes with verve and a crackling energy'
The Weekender
Water Music is fascinated with the way cultural and political pressures affect criminal behaviour... Orford has a rare ability to get under the skin of the genre's conventions'
Irish Times
'I loved the twists and turns of this book, and the truly unknowable nature of the next chapter'
