A Killer's Tracks. . . Missouri detective Claire Morgan is eager to get back to work after recuperating from injuries sustained on her last job. But the missing persons case that welcomes her home in the dead of winter soon turns more twisted and treacherous than Lake of the Ozarks' icy mountain roads. . . Can Only Lead. . . The woman's body is found suspended from a tree overlooking a local school. She is bleeding from the head, still alive--but not for long. Someone wanted Professor Simone Classon to suffer as much as possible before she died, making sure the victim had a perfect view of her colleagues and students on the campus below as she succumbed to the slow-working poison in her veins. . . To Dark Places. . . Frigid temperatures and punishing snows only make the investigation more difficult. And then the death threats begin--unnerving incidents orchestrated to send Claire a deadly message. Now, as she edges closer to the truth, Claire risks becoming entangled in a maniac's web--and the stuff of her own worst nightmares. . .

Albion Gidley Singer appears an entirely proper man: husband, father, pillar of the community. But he is a hollow man, and within him are frightened and frighteningly dark places from which spring loathing and fear of female flesh. And the kind of violence that might call itself love. Dark Places tells the story of this man - two parts monster to one part buffoon - and of his growing obsession. As the horror mounts, we gain a terrifying glimpse of the male ego's dark side, and of the destruction it can wreak upon itself and others. Yet at the same time Kate Grenville keeps alive the reader's sympathy for this doomed figure. This is a novel that fearlessly confronts the aspects of ourselves from which we normally recoil.

This is the first published collection of critical essays on the work of Kate Grenville, one of AustraliaOCOs most important contemporary writers. Grenville has been acclaimed for her novels, winning numerous national and international prizes including the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Commonwealth WritersOCO Prize. Her novels are marked by sharp observations of outsider figures who are often under pressure to conform to societyOCOs norms. More recently, she has written novels set in AustraliaOCOs past, revisiting and re-imagining colonial encounters between settlers and Indigenous Australians.This collection of essays includes a scholarly introduction and three new essays that reflect on GrenvilleOCOs work in relation to her approach to feminism, her role as public intellectual and her books on writing. The other nine essays provide analyses of each of her novels published to date, from the early success of LilianOCOs Story and Dreamhouse to the most recently published novel, The Lieutenant . Her work has been the subject of some debate and this is reflected in a number of the essays published here, most particularly with regard to her most successful novel to date, The Secret River . This intellectual engagement with important contemporary issues is a mark of GrenvilleOCOs fiction, testament to her own analysis of the vital role of writers in uncertain times. She has suggested that OC writers have ways of going into the darkest places, taking readers with them and coming out safely.OCO This volume attests to GrenvilleOCOs own significance as a writer in a time of change and to the value of her novels as indices of that change and in OC lighting dark places.OCO"

Shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Award and winner of the Victorian Premier's Literary Prize 1995. This edition introduced by Louise Adler. Dark Places, a companion novel to Lilian's Story, is the tale of a man with a comically grand exterior who believes he has the right, and the duty, to conquer the mocking flesh of any woman. Even his own daughter. Albion Gidley Singer creates his world as a vast collection of facts - facts he uses to support his own power and status. After an awkward childhood, aware that he is a disappointment to his father, he acquires, the trappings of respectability - success in business, a family. But beneath his comically grand exterior Albion's soul remains a dark place of fear and loathing, driving him to terrifying deeds. Kate Grenville is one of Australia's most celebrated writers. Her bestselling novels have won many awards and have been published around the world. They include The Secret River (winner of the Commonwealth Prize), The Idea of Perfection (winner of the Orange prize) and Lilian's Story (winner of the Australian/Vogel Prize). Louise Adler is CEO and Publisher-in-Chief of Melbourne University Publishing. She is the Deputy Chancellor of Monash University and the Chair of the Board of Methodist Ladies' College. She also serves as a member of the Board of the Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. textclassics.com.au 'A masterful, sharp-tongued portrait of an individual and an age. Grenville's fiction is impossible to put down.' Kirkus Reviews 'This is a dark tale, told with surprising humour.' The New Yorker, Recommended Reading 'Kate Grenville is a skilled, talented writer...lush and beautiful writing...' New York Times Book Review 'Great daring...the prose is gracefully poetic, rich with sensory descriptions that are powerful enough to carry the emotional weight. Grenville was extraordinarily brave to take on such a challenge...she provides a world so vivid that, despite discomfort, the reader continues...Grenville is truly a magician.' Boston Sunday Globe 'A ventriloqual tour de force of the darkness at the heart of man.' Sydney Morning Herald 'Grenville brilliantly, if chillingly, captures the voice of the smug, self-hating businessman who despises others as he despises himself...This is an eloquent, angry and humane novel...one of the strongest, most compelling novels of 1994.' Irish Times 'Dark Places is a book that rises to heights of obsessive and propulsive power...' Australian

The book is divided into two parts. The first forms a survey of the inadequacies of the Swiss school system in the early twentieth century (but the issues it discusses were universal ones which were just as prevalent in the English school system of that time). The second part of the book is a collection of testimonies from former pupils on the worst aspects of their schooling. With reference to the ideals of Pestalozzi the author proposes ways in which to find constructive solutions to the problems of harsh teachers, schools and de-motivated pupils.
