Colleen McCullough, a native of Australia, established the department of neurophysiology at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney before working as a researcher at Yale Medical School for ten years. She is the bestselling author of numerous novels, including The Thorn Birds, and lives with her husband on Norfolk Island in the South Pacific.
"In her enthusiastic style . . . McCullough delves into small town intrigue with well-defined characters and vivid descriptions. . . . Entertaining."
“The novel is a rich, tightly-woven tapestry of colorful characters and intriguing plot . . . Stunning, surprising, culturally shocking, The Prodigal Son is traditional McCullough at her best.”
"Just when it seems obvious who the murderer is, the evidence falls apart and it's back to square one. For those who enjoy drawing room stories, with many and varied characters, this will be an enjoyable read."
"Colleen McCullough proves once again that she’s a master of fiction with a wide ranging imagination in this book."
