Never Never

(Harriet Blue 1)




A chilling thriller set in the Australian outback, from the pen of the world's bestselling writer, James Patterson and co-written with award-winning crime writer Candice Fox. The Australian outback is the perfect hunting ground . . .

THE NEW YORK TIMES No.1 BESTSELLER!

Detective Harriet Blue needs to get out of town, fast.

With her brother under arrest for a series of brutal murders in Sydney, Harry’s chief wants the hot-headed detective kept far from the press. So he assigns her a deadly new case - in the middle of the outback.

Deep in the Western Australian desert, three young people have disappeared from the Bandya Mine. And it's Harry's job to track them down.

But still reeling from events back home, and with a secretive new partner at her side, Harry’s not sure who she can trust anymore.

And, in this unforgiving land, she has no idea how close she is to a whole new kind of danger . . .
