Jim thought his luck was in when he won the lottery. He couldn’t help telling everyone about his windfall.
But Jim’s luck changed when he and his brother accepted a lift from Kevin and Socker. They were suddenly being kidnapped. Kevin had pulled a gun. The car was headed out into the wild country of the Australian bush.
But the bush has a way of turning the tables. Miles from anywhere, in a world of scrub and shanty, the kidnappers become the victims of a wild and terrible enemy that lurks in the mists...
Comments: I found this book was quite slow to start but, after I got used to the author’s style, I really enjoyed it. The book is aimed at 10-14-year-olds but my ten year old daughter found it too boring to finish. I found this an interesting and enjoyable read, though not overly scary. Good for those days when you don’t want anything too heavy.
