Caroline Overington's stunning fiction debut is a multi-voiced novel centred around a child's death and its terrible repercussions. In Victorian police were called to a home on a housing estate an hour west of Melbourne. There, they found a five-year-old boy lying still and silent on the carpet. There were no obvious signs of trauma, but the child, Jacob, died the next day. The story made the headlines and hundreds attended the funeral.

Few people were surprised when the boy's mother and her boyfriend went to prison for the crime. Police declared themselves satisfied with the result, saying there was no doubt that justice had been done. And yet, for years rumours swept the estate and clung like cobwebs to the long-vacant house: there had been a cover-up. The real perpetrator, at least according to local gossip, was the boy's six-year-old sister, Lauren.

Twenty years on, Lauren has created a new life for herself, but details of Jacob's death being to resurface and the story again makes the newspapers. As Lauren struggles with the ghosts of her childhood, it seems only a matter of time before the past catches up with her. Caroline Overington. Caroline has won the Walkley Award for Excellence in Journalism twice, and she's a former winner of the Sir Keith Murdoch prize for journalism, and of the Blake Dawson prize. A thoughtful approach to troubling real-life events.

Taut writing helps rachet up the tension between the voices of each of the people involved, until all the layers are stripped away to finally reveal the truth. Our Lists. Buy from….

Ghost Child

This could easily have been a true story in fact, I sought out the statement at the front of the book that declared it was fiction just to make sure. More than anything else, this is a character study, an extraordinary character study presented in beautifully simple writing by a very fine writer. Lauren Cashman, now known as Lauren Cameron, has lived a tragic life. The oldest of four siblings, she was six when her five-year-old half-brother Jacob died from a depressed skull fracture that caused a massive brain injury. And Lauren and her two remaining siblings were split up and sent to various foster carers.
