and anger to burn

The author of the bestselling The Hunted returns…

‘The energy and cinematic panache of its telling is compelling. Bonzer.’ The Times

‘A ferocious tale’ Canberra Weekly ‘More twists than a roller-coaster.’ Herald Sun

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, pretend they haven’t seen anything, keep quiet, but Maggie is no ordinary girl.

She has to get out of town – fast. She heads towards Melbourne, where she just might find the answers she needs: about her mother, her past and the sins of her father. With a dubious cop as her ally, the police tracking her and a dangerous biker gang on their trail, Maggie’s troubles are doubling down fast.

‘A heroine you can’t look away from, pure thrills and wallop, wilder and gamier than your average Aussie noir, this is fierce storytelling.’ Kyle Perry

The Inheritance locks the reader in the trunk and puts the pedal to the metal for twenty-two blistering chapters.’ Jack Heath
