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.

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.

“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.
