The Hunted

book | Fiction | May 2020
ANZ → HarperCollins (Ed. Catherine Milne)
UK → Faber & Faber (Ed. Angus Cargill)

Tending a petrol station on a remote stretch of road in rural Australia, Frank maintains a quiet life with his granddaughter.

But when a badly injured woman arrives on his doorstep with several cars in pursuit, Frank and a handful of unlucky customers are thrust into a siege, forced to survive the night against mysterious attackers who will go to any lengths to get their revenge – and make sure no-one is left alive to remember them.

Powerful and visceral, this novel is a comment on the monsters within us.

Reviews

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

“Comes screaming out of the traps like Wolf Creek’s angry brother and does not let up until the end. A tense, bloodsoaked slice of Outback horror.”

Paul Howarth, author of Only Killers & Thieves

This is brutal storytelling. Crime and thriller readers will love this savage Rottweiler of a novel that will clamp its jaws around their throat and shake them to the end. 

Deborah Crabtree

An original and high-octane read, it makes Deliverance look like Picnic at Hanging Rock.
