John Tully’s Dark Clouds on the Mountain is a finely written detective story that carries its reader along with an intriguing plot, a gallery of memorable characters, and strange presentiments of evil. Through this last quality, Tully reveals the old Hobart Town that still lies behind the modern Hobart.
This gives the novel a dimension in time that does not detract from the immediacy of its portrayal of social, family and political disturbance in the contemporary world. Its fast-moving narrative takes us into the heart of a Tasmania as much embroiled in the contemporary globe as in its particular past. (publisher blurb)
