Publisher's Summary

In the drought-ridden rangelands of Western Australia, Gabe Ahern makes his living trapping wild dogs for local station owners.

Still coming to terms with his wife's death - and the part he played in it - the old bushman leads a solitary life. Until one morning, when he rescues a young Afghan man, Altair, from certain execution.

Now, with a gang of people smugglers on his tail and the lives of Altair's family on the line, Gabe is drawn into a ruthless game of cat and mouse. His main opponent is Chase Hunter, a kangaroo hunter with bush skills as wily and sharp as his own.

As the old dogger and roo-shooter go head to head, Gabe will need all his cunning to come out of this alive.

Perfect narration.

Ric has managed to capture the characters perfectly. I can speak with some authority on this because I wrote the bloody thing. Thank you for bringing Gabe, Amin, Darren, Courtney and Chase to life, they are exactly how I heard them in my head.

Multi layered wonder

Hooked me from the beginning, then dragged me on a wild and blasphemous ride.
Loved the characters, the gripping plot, the sensitivity towards hot topics, but mostly the heart of it all. A book with big beating heart. ❤️

A gripping tale

Not for the faint hearted or nervous.
An intriguing story line with so many twists and turns.
The characters come alive in the descriptions and the end / climax does not disappoint with all the ‘loose ends are cleverly’ closed off. Would definitely recommend.
