About the Book

Where does the adventure end . . .
and the nightmare begin?

Frank owns a service station on a little-used highway. His granddaughter, Allie, is sent to stay with him for the summer, but they don’t talk a lot.

Simon is a dreamer and an idealist, in thrall to the romance of the open road and desperately in search of something.

Maggie is the woman who will bring them together, someone whose own personal journey will visit unimaginable terror on them all. . .

'With echoes of Deliverance and Battle Royale, the Australian outback-set The Hunted is 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

What readers are saying:

'A high octane roller-coaster of a novel, brilliantly written with strong characters to cheer for. Just don't read it before going to sleep like I did.'

'This type of horror/action thriller isn't my usual thing but boy, did I love this book.'

'This entire book was just pure, fast-paced tension and I loved every insane page of it.'

'I’d say it’s a hard book to put down, but a couple of times I found the suspense heightened enough that I needed a break. That’s how good it was.'

'Even the squeamish would find it difficult to put this book down for very long.'

“An original high-octane read, it makes Deliverance look like Picnic at Hanging Rock.”
- The Times
“A story that is at once exhilarating, gleefully vicious and totally, race-to-the-finish-line unputdownable.”
- Observer
