Harvest of the Unborn by Cheryl Sullivan is set in Sydney post-WWII. The author introduces us to Charlotte, an investigative journalist.
As part of her quest to unearth the reasons for the strange disappearance of a young woman from a Kings Cross boarding house, she takes up a room there.
Charlotte is kindly welcomed by Mrs. Parks the attentive landlady, but she is unnerved by her twin daughters and their odd behaviour.
Charlotte becomes friends with some of the other boarders, and after another female from the house leaves without warning she becomes even more unnerved.
Charlotte strikes up a friendship with Detective Michael Devlin who is also invested in the case of the missing girls as his sister is one of them. Charlotte shares with Michael her stunning discovery of what’s in the basement of the boarding house, but having this knowledge now puts Charlotte in danger.
What is behind that locked door to the basement?
Joe, a homeless man living in the tunnels under the train station, talks of his strange night visions. Is he sharing his drunken imaginings, or does he have crucial evidence?
Harvest of the Unborn is an awesome weekend read that I found easy to enjoy.
I feel like Cheryl Sullivan has left things open for a follow-up book, which I certainly hope will come in time, as I would love to learn more. This book has the makings of an engrossing TV mini series.
