The Shattering - A Mystery with some Surprise Queer Content

The Shattering by Karen Healey

Summerton is perfect. A town in the isolated and stunning West Coast region of New Zealand, it is blessed with gorgeous weather and hordes of tourists.

But Keri is immune to her hometown’s charms. Her older brother has just killed himself, without warning or explanation, and left Keri shattered with grief and too many unanswered questions. So when her childhood friend Janna and tourist Sione offer answers, Keri is keen to listen.

Janna and Sione’s own older brothers died in suspicious circumstances. Sunny Summerton has dark secrets. And as they investigate, the answers to their questions become more bizarre.

Shattering the secrecy of Summerton may open the trio to dangers they never knew were possible.

Can they save Summerton’s next victim? Or will they become victims themselves?

My thanks to Editor Alvina Ling for the heads-up about this book, and here's the US cover:

Tanita reviewed this one for Finding Wonderland. I really enjoyed this one and her first book, Guardian of the Dead!
