Publisher's Summary

A chilling thriller set in the Australian Outback, from the pen of the world's best-selling writer, James Patterson, and cowritten with award-winning crime writer Candice Fox.

The Australian Outback is the perfect hunting ground....

Detective Harriet Blue needs to get out of town fast. With her brother under arrest for a series of brutal murders in Sydney, Harry's chief wants the hotheaded detective kept far from the press. So he assigns her a deadly new case - in the middle of the Outback.

Deep in the Western Australian desert, three young people have disappeared from the Bandya Mine. And it's Harry's job to track them down. But still reeling from events back home, and with a secretive new partner at her side, Harry's not sure who she can trust anymore. And in this unforgiving land, she has no idea how close she is to a whole new kind of danger.

Non existent plot twists

Absolute crap. The most predictable boring book i have had in a long time. No twists and the most clichéd charachters you will ever have.

Good, but...

A good rolling story, but a few strange things 1) the narrator sounded like an English person putting on a fake Aussie accent. 2) weird use of some Americanisms like "hood" of a car and -cringe! - "dove" instead of dived. 3) The MOST drug free places in Australia are mine sites!

Not worth reading

Very disappointing story line. Hard to believe Patterson wrote it. So far I’ve returned to beginning twice as it’s so disengaging I’ve no idea what had happened.

Job for the 'Mystery wagon'

Started out good, but limited to a desert mine camp. You are given 4 or 5 suspects, and it is one of them. A bit like a Scooby Doo mystery. The main character is very good.

Not expected standard

There are excellent female actors with presence and enough life experience to represent different characters. mine workers, foreman, cops of both genders. This narrator is not one of them. Even on a long drive I couldn't listen to this for an hour. Finishing was more painful than I like my books to be. when my partner was in the car she couldn't handle the voice for more than 5 minutes. It may have been a better story than I rated but compared to the previous Fox books and their narrator, this was pretty disappointing.
