Heart-stoppingly tense, this is a brilliant page-turning thriller. – Chris Child

Gripping and beautifully written, with sharp dialogue and a real feel for the desert landscape. I couldn’t stop reading it. – Beth Boyd

A remarkable debut novel, the couple are realistic, and the killer dark, dangerous, and sometimes very funny. – Ann Abrams

An intelligent thriller as unstoppable and exacting as its villain, with heroes who are human and engaging. Riveting. – T.J. Brearton (best-selling author of Habit)

Gripping, thrilling, unputdownable suspense. In the middle of the desert a couple are pinned down by a ruthless sniper.

James and Elle Eversman are a young couple travelling through the Mojave desert on their way to a new life. When their car mysteriously breaks down they are stranded in the middle of nowhere without much water and no cell-phone reception. A mile away a deadly sniper has them in his cross-hairs. They are pinned down behind their broken-down car, surrounded by open ground in all directions. There’s nowhere to run and no one to help them. How can they possibly survive?
