  • A unique phantasmagoria of crime and punishment, which combines the shadowy terrors of Goya with the tumescent life of Dickens

    Peter Ackroyd, The Times
  • A triumph of research, passion and fine writing. I found it an extraordinary and compelling book to read, one of fantastic scope and imagination; truly a tour de force

  • Riveting

    The Book Magazine
  • With its mood and stature...The Fatal Shore is well on its way to becoming the standard opus on the convict years

    Sydney Sunday Telegraph
  • An enthralling account of the convict settlement of Australia, thoroughly researched and excellently written, brimming over with rare and pungent characters, and tales of pathos, bravery, and horror
