Things We Bury

AUTHOR: Matthew Ryan Davies

Three siblings, reunited in their home town, are struggling to deal with the fallout of a car crash that almost killed their father. This, on top of everything else life is throwing at them. Josh is trying to save his marriage and hard-won TV career in the wake of a painfully public sexual harassment scandal. But is he really as innocent as he says? Jac, perennially single, is getting married - unbeknownst to her family. But will the private war she's been waging since leaving the town sabotage this relationship, too? Dane, ever honest and dependable, is running the family business while their father is in hospital. But not everything is above board. Can he look the other way for his dad's sake? A mysterious list of names. Long-buried family secrets. Old, festering wounds. What will happen when everything buried is dragged to the surface? Praise for Things We Bury 'Davies writes with rare clarity and empathy, giving a razor-sharp insight into the complexities of modern life. An acutely observed, utterly compelling family drama.' - Mark Brandi 'Things We Bury had me in the first chapter! So compelling, so well written, so damn clever. It is that book that will have you saying "just one more chapter" until it's finished. I am already desperate for his next book.' - Sally Hepworth 'From the opening page of Things We Bury, I was so immersed in the Harding family I felt like I was one of them. Weighty emotional themes are carried along in a fluent and easy style, and when all seems to be spinning apart, the ties of love are stress-tested. Only a truly gifted novelist could pull this off, and Matthew Ryan Davies has written a beautiful, moving family drama.' - Malcolm Knox 'Jeez, this family. Their stories. It's like an addiction. It gets into your veins and it is very hard to quit them.' - John Birmingham
