    Rocking Horse Road
    Much more than a murder mystery, this powerful novel is about coming of age and loss of innocence. The body of a teenage girl is found on the beach in the days leading up to Christmas, 1980. It's an event that makes a huge impact on all those who live along Rocking Horse Road, which runs through the Spit, a long 'finger of bone - dry sand' between the ocean and the estuary. It's an event that for one hot summer brings together a group of fifteen - year - old boys and then keeps them linked for the rest of their lives. Evolving from Nixon's celebrated short story, this compelling novel shows New Zealand turning upon itself during the 1981 Springbok Tour. It examines how early events can influence the rest of our lives, and probes ideas of community, collective memory and story - telling.
