A sleepy bohemian neighbourhood.
An ancient legend from the ancient past.
A brilliant but troubled young writer.
A voluptuous healer.
A shadowy cult and its sinister leader.
A trail of riddles; a hidden artefact.
An explicit sex scene, then a struggle for ultimate power.
And a final, unspeakable secret.
Unspeakable Secrets of the Aro Valley is a dark and hilarious odyssey through Wellington’s underbelly.
Danyl (it’s pronounced Dan-ill) McLauchlan was born in Wellington in 1974. He studied at Victoria University, and worked and travelled in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, before he returned to Wellington where he works as a biologist. This is his first book.
