Purchase a copy of The Arsonist by Chloe Hooper during the month of November and receive a voucher for a hot drink* redeemable at our Afterword café.
On the scorching February day in 2009 that became known as Black Saturday, a man lit two fires in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, then sat on the roof of his house to watch the inferno. From the author of the bestselling and brilliant Tall Man comes a true-life thriller. The Arsonist traces the events of that day, the hunt for the man responsible, and the strange puzzle of his mind. It also reveals the place of fire in our country, how essential it is, and the need to understand, engage with, and protect against it.
