In the Winter Dark

by Tim Winton

As night falls in a lonely valley called The Sink, four people prepare for a quiet evening.

Then, in his orchard, Murray Jacob sees a moving shadow; across the swamp, his neighbour Ronnie watches her lover leave and feels her baby roll inside her; and on the verandah of the Stubbs house, a small dog is torn screaming from its leash by something unseen.

Nothing will be the same again.
