In Flaming Tree Grove, life appears to be picture perfect. Security and privacy are coveted and seclusion is its own reward. Until the day when little Ruby sets off to visit her grandmother at the end of the cul-de-sac and is never seen again. The neighbourhood fractures into grief and suspicion in the search for answers to a terrible deprivation and potential crime. Then a parcel arrives on her parents' doorstep…But where is Ruby and who knows what happened to her?
"Matt Cameron's Ruby Moon is part whodunnit, part psychodrama but, more than anything, it's an exercise in terror and the terrible price of love." (Review quote from The West Australian Newspaper)
