J.P. Po­mare / Ha­chette

The coastal town of Maketu, on New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty, makes an ideal hide­out. Evie and Jim are holed up in an old beach shack, on the run from some kind of hor­rific in­ci­dent in Mel­bourne, which may have been her fault. Jim says she has to do what he says, that he’s pro­tect­ing her un­til she can get well, but Evie is not so sure. She thinks he’s ly­ing and it feels like she’s be­ing held pris­oner. Trou­ble is, her mind is spit­ting up dark frag­ments of mem­ory and try­ing to piece it all to­gether may be driv­ing her mad. The de­but novel from a tal­ented Kiwi writer, this lit­er­ary thriller has more twists than a coun­try back road and enough sus­pense to make you leave the lights on.
