FIVE WENT OUT.
FOUR CAME BACK...
A three-day team-building hike in the Australian bush ends in disaster
when the unpleasant Alice Russell disappears.
Is Alice here? Did she make it? Is she safe? In the chaos, in
the night, it was impossible to say which of the four had asked after Alice's
welfare. Later, when everything got worse, each would insist it had been them.
The hike through the rugged landscape is meant to take the office colleagues
out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team
building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.
Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a particularly keen interest in the
whereabouts of the missing bushwalker. Alice Russell is the whistleblower in
his latest case - and Alice knew secrets about the company she worked for and
the people she worked with.
Far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell Falk a tale of
suspicion, violence and disintegrating trust. And as he delves into the
disappearance, it seems some dangers may run far deeper than anyone knew.
Harper has created a page-turner that
leaves you gasping to know who did what and there are plenty of suspects.
This thriller will leave you gripped to the last page.
