David Monroe is the would-be beneficiary of his father’s multimillion-dollar enterprise. Avaricious and sadistic, Mr. Monroe creates an evil plot to secure his inheritance by using another human being to sow his seed and bear the children his barren wife cannot.
Bodies begin to disappear one after another. Helen Avery, seemingly a victim of these mysterious disappearances, manages to escape the gruesome nightmare and survives. Rescued from the outback of Australia, Helen begins her own investigation of the past, uncovering more and more evidence that ultimately points to David Monroe.
Set in 1980’s Australia, The Planting is a chilling novel of depravity and greed, rich with dynamic characters and twisted plots.

‘Why are you mumbling, when you talk to me? (Your fault?)
‘Turn the TV sound up. (Old film?)
‘Yes, of course I can see it is raining. (‘See’ not hear?)
‘No, I never heard the phone ringing. (Never rang?)

The news we are getting for Australia regarding the fires is frightening. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you, and hoping you and all your loved ones are safe.
Hello, Violet. How are you down under? Not freezing your extremities like we are here, I'll bet. Just wanted to let you know I got your book. I have one and a half others to get through before I read it, but I'm looking forward to it.
