Description

Something is wrong in the small outback town of Morgan Creek.

A farmer goes missing after a blue in the pub. A teenage couple fail to show up for work. When Patrick and Sheila McDonough investigate, they discover the missing persons list is growing. Before they realise what's happening, the residents of the remote town find themselves in a fight for their lives against a foe they would never have suspected.

And the dry red earth will run with blood.

Review quote

"Trust me, you've never read anything like this. Deranged, delirious, diabolical, it just begs to be a film, and when it is, I'll be first in line to see it. The Roo is a f*cking riot." - Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-Winning author of Kin and Sour Candy

"...all I can say is ...wow! Yes it's a bizarre concept, and of course there's a grindhouse feel to it. Lots of macabre violence and insanity, but at the core this book is about the people, not the crazy Roo, and deals with some heavy emotional issues. It's at times heartbreaking, terrifying and even hilarious. Alan has written a unique novella that will no doubt stay with you long after you've read it! You're in for a ride." - Michael Evan, Fantasy Focus
