Bay of Fires

A Novel

A darkly suspenseful thriller set in coastal Tasmania, where an idyllic calm is shattered by the death of a young tourist Sarah Avery’s reckless behavior has cost her a job, her boyfriend, and the independence she desperately craves. While she is home (reluctantly) for the holidays in the tiny seaside town where her parents live, Sarah’s hopes for calm are shattered when she finds the body of a young female backpacker washed up on the shore. A year earlier, another woman went missing and hasn’t been seen since. Is there a killer in this quiet harbor?

The arrival of the journalist Hall Flynn to investigate the murder sets the locals reeling. Hall, haunted by demons of his own and yearning for a fresh start, will do whatever it takes to break the story. And Sarah will do whatever it takes to keep her own secrets safe.

Reader Reviews


"Beautifully atmospheric and superbly gripping, BAY OF FIRES is a stellar debut. Poppy Gee has a deft hand with characterization, and a clear, fresh voice. She brought me straight to the wild shores of Tasmania, and into the troubled heart of her heroine -- and all the while she had me eagerly turning the pages late into the night as she carefully tightened the screws of suspense."—Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of HEARTBROKEN
"A thrilling murder mystery set on the coast of Tasmania, BAY OF FIRES is my favorite book of the fall. Poppy Gee's heroine is tough and absolutely winning. I've been handing this to all my friends, telling them to keep an eye out for wallabys."—Amanda Eyre Ward, bestselling author of HOW TO BE LOST and CLOSE YOUR EYES
