Latest reviews

  • “Definitely worthy of attention, [Wilson's] work is big: it encompasses large, important themes, and at the same time, is completely unique.”
    — The Bowed Bookshelf, Feb 7 2017
  • “Wilson’s beautiful writing stands out in harsh contrast to the world of violence, heartache, and human suffering he depicts. [...] I loved this book, and I’m so glad to discover Rohan Wilson.”
    — Historical Novels Review, Feb 1 2017
  • "Readers who admired the propulsive plotting, atmospheric sense of place, and fierce family loyalty in Patrick DeWitt's The Sisters Brothers and Cormac McCarthy's The Road should be equally taken with Wilson's (The Roving Party) superb novel. Highly recommended."
    — Library Journal (Starred Review), Jan 27 2017
  • "Wilson’s evocation of the Tasmanian setting is pitch-perfect, as are his characterization and the suspense maintained throughout this exquisitely wrought novel."
    — Booklist (Starred Review), Jan 26 2017
  • "This is a satisfying, grimy adventure about a reciprocal violence that pollutes."
    — Publishers Weekly, Jan 2 2017
  • "...a fast-paced, hard-nosed fable about revenge, pursuit, and the search for a moral compass in a place where chaos and rage and injustice set every dial wildly aquiver."
