    One thought on “Captivity Captive”

    1. Can a writer of fiction provide a plausible solution to a real-life, unsolved murder? Rodney Hall confronts that challenge in Captivity Captive, an interesting, disturbing novel from Australia. As Hall tells it, the brutal life of an outback farming family in New South Wales is forever changed when three of the family's ten grown children are found murdered under mysterious circumstances.

    2. 'Captivity Captive' is my favourite book by Rodney Hall. I've read about five of his. I think this one stands out for me because it has the sharpest, most tightly constructed plot.
