    In Lesley Glaister’s spellbinding outback thriller, a young couple’s flight from a cold and dreary English winter traps them in a sunbaked nightmare For Cassie, the ad in the newspaper is a dream come true. Spending a year managing a farm in western Australia away from everything and everyone she and her commitment-phobic boyfriend, Graham, know could be exactly what he needs to realize it’s time to think about getting married and starting a family.   But their fantasy adventure isn’t quite what Cassie imagined. Woolagong, an old sheep station, is on the remote fringes of the desert, where the weather is stifling hot all the time. And the outback is crawling with all manner of lethal creatures. There’s no telephone, no radio, and no electricity—no contact with the outside world. Cassie and Graham send letters home but never receive any in return.   And then there are the employers. Larry and his wife, Mara, live a very private life, which includes some peculiar habits. But what most unsettles Cassie and Graham is the distinct feeling that they’re being watched.   Filled with menace and a creeping sense of dread, As Far as You Can Go is Lesley Glaister at her spine-chilling best.
