A thrilling and ambitious new novel from the author of the bestselling and prize-winning TERRA NULLIUS
'Set in an intergalactic war, this powerful story is told from multiple viewpoints and delivers an emotionally wrenching impact.' - Sally Morgan, author of the bestselling Australian classic MY PLACE
Shane Daniels and Romany Zetz have been drawn into a war that is not their own. Lives will be destroyed, families will be torn apart. Trust will be broken.
When the war is over, some will return to a changed world. Will they discover that glory is a lie?
Claire G. Coleman's new novel takes us to a familiar world to ask what we have learned from the past. THE OLD LIE might not be quite what you expect.
