Publisher's Summary

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide - an electrifying, heartpounding, truly unpauseable thriller.

"A truly terrifying, breathlessly exciting novel. It gut punches you in the first few pages and doesn't let you recover until the final, thrilling climax. An extraordinary book." (M. W. Craven)

"An original and high-octane read, it makes Deliverance look like Picnic at Hanging Rock." (The Times/Sunday Times Crime Club)

Frank is a service station owner on a little-used highway who just wants a quiet life. His granddaughter has been sent to stay with him to fix her attitude, but they don't talk a lot.

When a badly injured young woman arrives at Frank's service station with several cars in pursuit, Frank and a handful of unsuspecting customers are thrust into a life-or-death standoff.

But who are this group of men and women who will go to any lengths for revenge? And what do they want - other than no survivors?

A ferociously fast-paced, filmic, visceral, tense, and utterly electric novel, unlike anything you've heard before. Set on a lonely, deserted highway, deep in the Australian badlands, The Hunted is white-knuckle suspense matched to the fast-paced adrenaline of a Jack Reacher novel and the creeping menace of Wake in Fright. This is unmissable listening.

"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." (Sydney Morning Herald)

"A perfectly paced, thrilling read with an unrelenting sense of dread and menace...building suspense at every turn of the page. Crime and thriller readers will love this savage Rottweiler of a novel that will clamp its jaws around their throat and shake them to the end." (Bookseller+Publisher)

"Tough, violent, suspenseful and peopled with great characters, The Hunted could well be the Australian thriller of the year. This is Jack Reacher for adults." (Canberra Weekly)

Thrilling book with great narration!!

Hunted is defintely worth the listen!! The book has many interesting intertwined plots that come together in an explosive ending!!! Each character in this book has depth and had me intrigued the whole time. The author has also used the Australian aesthetic to create an eerie context in which the story can unfold.
