Lists with This Book. I personally really enjoyed reading all the different voices from characters such as a social worker, a foster mother, a reporter and a police officer, but also the Cashman family.

Book Review of Ghost Child by Caroline Overington at AustCrimeFiction
Skip to main content. In Victorian police were called to a home on a housing chilld an hour west of Melbourne. Sep 09, Mandy rated it liked it.
Firstly, the death of little boy Jake, unmarked except for an indentation on his head, from blunt force trauma, the knowledge of the reader immediately that what happened is not the story the mother is saying.
Lots of emotion comes through. The suspense throughout is gradual, building towards the end when you know the real story is hopefully going to be revealed.
Jan 10, Renita D’Silva rated it liked it. I couldn’t put this book down! You see cases like this in the news every other week and the reaction is always the same. Return to Book Page. In all it’s a good easy read with an interesting storyline. Her first, Only in New York, was about working as a foreign correspondent in Manhattan.
Ghost Child really delves into all of the detail. Some of these narratives add to the throughput of the story – particularly the early ones, which detail the immediate after-effects of the crime. Dec 29, Mamata Titus rated it it was amazing.

In Novemberpolice are called to a residence in an estate an hour out of Melbourne where there are reports of a small child having been assaulted.
Review – GHOST CHILD, Caroline Overington
There were no obvious signs of trauma, but the child, Jacob, died the next day. Personal tools Log in. The court case follows.
I get the feeling she’s seen a lot if this stuff in her career as a journo.
The story of how it happened is sketchy to say the least. Her second, Kickback, was about the UN oil for food scandal. The red tape around legislation, frustrations between foster parents and the system, and ultimately the ramifications on the child.
Something must be about to happen to her. It is the thing we in modern medicine devote our greatest energy toward preventing. Interesting subject matter and plot, but it took too long to get to the point and then it was rushed. You see cases like this in the news every other week and the reaction is always the same. The Cashman children are distinctive — very pale with white hair, they are the sort of children that the proprietor of a shop would remember.
