Soon Nick's 'good deed' has hurled him right into a nightmare of soiled secrets and techniques, corruption and lengthening probability. It leaves him with out choice-he must disappear. His years as against the law reporter taught him much approximately aliases, deception, and getting away with it. yet Nick quickly learns that the individual you're pretending to be could be a lot extra harmful than the individual you actually are.
Tom Gilling's long-awaited Dreamland is fantastically written and compulsively readable-and its subject matters and magnificence mark an enormous departure from Gilling's hugely acclaimed old novels The Sooterkin and Miles McGinty.
'A crime mystery, a street tale, a meditation on identification, this taut, suspenseful novel is imbued with modern issues and anxieties.' Australian Literary Review
