New Release


Ben doesn’t like being a nude model in a small country town. Then again, the local footballers don’t like their girlfriends ogling Ben.

Broke and lonely, Ben falls for Marty: the ambitious and violent young woman rapidly taking over her brother’s drug and gun-running trade.

Once Ben gets pulled into their dark world of bikies and crime, he discovers a new level of violence that makes the footballers seem harmless – especially when his only friend is then murdered.

"It's been a long time since I read the first few pages of a novel and thought, I need to read this book. I adored the characters, the subtle humour and insights into rural Australian communities.”
JP Pomare
Bestselling author of Call Me Evie, Tell Me Lies, and The Wrong Woman

If the humidity doesn’t kill you, the locals will

Immerse yourself in a small Aussie town where only the tough – and twisted – survive.

This isn’t just another outback noir novel, though: it’s as much a coming-of-age tale as it is a suspense thriller.

Imagine a Bundaberg Rum-soaked combination of:

  • Brighton Rock by Grahame Greene
  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  • The Dry by Jane Harper
  • Factotum by Charles Bukowski
  • Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton
  • The Five Gates of Hell by Rupert Thomson
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

and … well, you’ll still need more Bundaberg Rum.
