The Brothers

By S.D. Hinton

An isolated house. A mysterious note. Someone is watching …

An absorbing, atmospheric mystery about families, secrets and the bonds of brotherhood set on the Victorian south coast.

Welcome home, Jake …

When Special Forces veteran Jake Harlow returns to the hamlet of Lorne on the Victorian south-west coast for his younger brother Tom’s funeral, he finds a sinister series of notes that suggest Tom’s death was no accident.

With Tom’s best friend Stocky, and ex-girlfriend Lucy, Jake starts to dig into secrets old and new. Who might be targeting the Harlow family, and why?

As they get closer to the truth, the danger becomes very real. But can Jake, burdened by scars both physical and mental, still protect anyone – including himself?

An absorbing, atmospheric mystery about families, hidden truths and the bonds of brotherhood.

‘The Brothers is a masterclass in menacing tension … Atmospheric and moody, the novel chills with its subtle allusions to an unknown enemy that is too close for comfort. Perfect for readers of Garry Disher, Chris Hammer and Jane Harper, The Brothers combines the idyllic Australian surf town setting with unseen dangers – both physical and mental – that lurk in the shadows.’ Books+Publishing
