The author of the bestselling The Hunted returns with another unmissable, white-knuckle, gritty urban suspense thriller: think Jack Reacher meets John Wick in a high-octane, high-speed chase on the dark streets of Melbourne.

A young woman is hiding out in a sleepy North Queensland tourist town, trying to stay under the radar, when she stumbles across a dangerous drug cartel. Anyone else might back away shaking their head, pretend they hadn't seen anything, keep quiet, even though people are getting hurt. But Maggie is no ordinary girl. She's got skills, as well as plenty of secrets to keep, burdens to carry - and anger to burn.

When circumstances mean that she has to get out of town - fast - she heads towards Melbourne, where she just might find the answers that she needs - answers about her family and who she really is. With a bent cop for a dubious ally, the police tracking her and furious bikers on her trail, Maggie is in deep trouble. She's only got her ingenuity and wits on her side - and a determination not to inherit the sins of her father.

A powerhouse, fast-paced, high adrenalin and tense thriller from Gabriel Bergmoser, author of the critically acclaimed bestselling outback noir The Hunted.

Praise for The Hunted: 'An original and high-octane read, it makes Deliverance look like Picnic at Hanging Rock.'

'This slice of outback noir is .... at once exhilarating, gleefully vicious and totally, race-to-the-finish-line unputdownable'
Observer

'An audacious walk on the wildest side of outback noir ... a vivid thriller.'
