Summary

The Silent Country is a vast and beautiful wilderness, a place which holds secrets and stories that are rarely spoken. TV producer Veronica Anderson travels to the Northern Territory to retrace the journey of an expedition that had set out 50 years earlier to film the outback, but which mysteriously ended in tragedy. Of the group, led by the eccentric Maxim Topov, few are still alive and they are reluctant to talk about the intriguing events. It is through the help of local N.T. Park Ranger, Jamie McIntosh, that Veronica begins to piece together the puzzle and discover the answers. These answers break the silence and change her life.

Probably the worst Audible book I have ever tried

I am one hour in and cannot imagine 14 more hours of this nauseating narrator and unbelievably slow development of characters and plot.

Great

I really enjoyed the story and the depiction of outback Australia. Maxim Topov lives in a world all his own.
