An exciting addition to New Zealand's burgeoning crime genre, this is the first novel to be set in Turangi and features the beautiful Tongariro River.
"Tina Shaw's ear for dialogue is so acute that every character leaps from the page whenever they speak. With swift and subtle strokes she evokes the inside of a prison as easily as the beauty of the landscape, and all that lies beneath the secrets of the human heart. I found this taut, knowing novel absolutely compelling. The Children's Pond is a brilliant psychological thriller."
