With the North wind hard at his back, Scully stood in the doorway and sniffed. (from the first line)
Anticipating the arrival of his wife and child in Ireland, Fred Scully is devastated when his little girl appears alone at the airport. She carries no note, and offers no explanation for her mother's absence. As father and daughter frantically search Europe for the woman who has mysteriously abandoned them, Tim Winton paints a searing portrait of how one love destroys a man--and another saves him. "Satisfies on every level".--The Washington Post Book World.
From the Publisher:
Fred Scully eagerly waits in an Irish airport for the arrival of his wife and seven-year-old daughter. He envisions a new life ahead of them, a fresh start in an old farmhouse that he's been renovating during the weeks they have spent apart. But something goes catastrophically wrong. His daughter emerges inexplicably alone through the airplane terminal's glass doors, and Scully's life goes down in flames.|Thus begins THE RIDERS, a dark and powerful journey into the obsessive psyche of a man in search of a woman vanished. It is a tale of the ghosts that plague relationships; of revelation sought in places and people; and of redemption found in the determined will to carry on. Epic in its sweep yet gripping in its details, THE RIDERS is storytelling at its most haunting.

Praise

"Tim Winton, the most brilliant of younger Australian writers, here delivers in his normal translucent prose the most intricate, vivid, and rewarding tale he has ever written. From Yeatsian Ireland to modern Greece and back to Australia, he encompasses and transcends all the known world." - Thomas Keneally

Washington Post Book World
"Winton's sensory command of place is exact, imaginative, and carefully connected to Scully's emotional deterioration. 'The Riders' is richly textured and the varying rhythms and syntactical shifts of the prose create as much tension as the plot." - Michael Parker 07/16/1995

"This beautifully written book brings an old story to new lands, to all lands: how to love, how to feel and how to be loved. There are sentences in this book that jar your senses with the ease of their craft--sentences which remind you to hurry up and live." - Rick Bass
