    Praise for Beth Montgomery
    andMurderer’s Thumb

    ‘I loved Murderer’s Thumb. It raced along like a runaway tractor.’

    ‘A wonderfully taut thriller that manages to remain smart and suspenseful from the captivating image on the cover to the very last beat of the book. Montgomery’s characters are unforgettable as she plunges deep into the worst and best that humans and small-town Australia can be.’
