The first bestselling novel in the compelling Duffy and Macintosh series, depicting our turbulent history as never before.

"The home grown version of Wilbur Smith" The Sunday Age

A stark and vivid novel of Australia's brutal past.

An epic tale of two families, the Macintoshes and the Duffys, who are locked in a deadly battle from the moment squatter Donald Macintosh commits an act of barbarity on his Queensland property.

Their paths cross in love, death and revenge as both families fight to tame the wild frontier of Australia's north country.

    So glad I discovered Peter Watt. Cry of the Curlew was an epic journey and is just the start. So looking forward to devouring the rest of the books in this series and others.
  • Truly gripping story

    Peter Watts has written a real gripping story that cannot be put down. The characters, plots and suspense at every new chapter will serve to encourage reading the next book in the series. It is also well written, easy to read and and will keep the reader entertained throughout. Well worth the price of admission.

    What a great read! Opened my eyes to a relatively unknown part of Australian. Peter Watt is a talented author, every Australian would enjoy, and should read this book.

    Can you face up to your heritage? Peter Watt can. I finished this book in the sure and certain knowledge that Australian history is very different to what I was taught at school. This riveting read kept me entertained as a great book should and simultaneously made me realise what happened in the past to create the Australia that has been so good to me. A lot of blood was spilled for me to have the lifestyle I enjoy. Guilt will pervade my thoughts to my grave.
