Red Queen is a cracker of a thriller.'
DEEP IN THE Australian bush, Shannon Scott is holed up in a cabin with his brother, Rohan, waiting out the catastrophic effects of worldwide disease and a breakdown of global economies. After months of isolation, Shannon imagines there's nothing he doesn't know about his older brother, or himself - until a mysterious woman slips under their late-night watch and past their loaded guns.
Denny Cassidy is beautiful and a survivor. Her inclusion into cabin life brings about the need for a new set of rules. Soon the brothers begin to look to her as a source of comfort, hop and intimacy . . . Or is her warmth just a trap? Could she actually be a cold tactician, a woman with a deadly agenda?
