“An exquisite exercise in psychological suspense, a dark tale cut from the cloth woven by the likes of Lisa Gardner and Harlan Coben. Timely, tumultuous and terrific.” – Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author
On Australia’s island state, more than one species of Tasmanian Devil exists…
Beneath the surface of Nina Holt’s perfect marriage lurks a life of terror inflicted upon her by her politically powerful husband Michael and his brother Greg, a sadistic detective. For over a decade they have managed to keep Nina imprisoned, using her to satisfy their every whim.
Worse still, the only light in her life—her 9-year-old son, Sam—considers Michael a hero. When Sam imitates Michael’s violence by lashing out at her, Nina knows it’s time for both of them to escape before Sam truly turns into the monster Michael is grooming him to become.
After crashing her car in her haste to escape, kind motorist Case Herder offers her help. Unaware that he has his own plans for her, Nina accepts, igniting a deadly game of cat and mouse as they flee across Tasmania with Sam.
As Michael and Greg relentlessly hunt them down to Cradle Mountain, Nina finds herself with nowhere left to run. Cornered, she has no choice but to face evil head-on.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My inspiration for this book was a story my mother told me about a stranger stopping to help her when her car broke down. She had a very strong intuitive feeling that he was not to be trusted. A few months later his photo was in the newspaper and he was revealed to be a killer.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters were inspired by the type of people I most fear coming in contact with the most vulnerable. I wanted my hero to start out weak and grow strong within herself to save not only her own life, but her son's.
