Stolen gold, murderous bikers, and crooked cops are just the beginning of Gareth Ford's troubles in an action-packed debut crime novel set in Australia
Ford laid his fingertips gently on the cut in his shoulder where the bullet had clipped him. His best chance would be to hitch a ride south at the first opportunity, before the police started looking for him. He was alone, enveloped in the monstrous silence of the desert. Free and alone, without assistance and without excuse.
Left for dead in the desert, framed as the inside man in a bullion robbery at the remote mine site where he works, and fearing that his daughter and ex-wife have been abducted from their home in Perth, Gareth Ford must cross 1,000 miles of wilderness to find his family. He forms a fragile alliance with Doc and Banjo, a pair of fugitive bikers, and Kavanagh, a cop from the Gold Stealing Detection Unit who has found herself shut out of the case. As this unlikely team sets out across the Outback, they are pursued by cops, mercenaries, and bikers, each group with its own agenda for preventing Ford from reaching Perth and uncovering a conspiracy that spreads through the upper strata of Western Australian life.
