A bestselling YA thriller exploring death, revenge and morality.

'The challenge of the Coast to Coast was for the whole PE class to get itself from one side of the island to the other in under six days. "Where to?" "The bush," I croaked. "Hide." We cut back to the right, down off the track, crashing through the undergrowth and sliding down steep slopes. After a couple of minutes we stumbled to a stop, pressed in close … we waited and listened, the others with their heads bursting with questions, mine spinning with answers I didn’t want to believe. '

Marko surfaces from a drug-induced haze to find himself hidden from the world in a psychiatric ward. He is certain the ‘Doctor’ means to kill him, but he in turn has vengeful plans of his own. Who are these people and what happened to the others? Who can Marko trust and how much time does he have?

Time enough to write it all down, his story of a coast to coast trip and the earthquake that ripped his world apart. A ‘top-notch thriller’
