When journalist India Kane travels from Sydney to the outback town of Cooinda for a reunion with her friend Lauren, she has no idea of the town's appalling history. There, forty years earlier, an entire Aboriginal family had been massacred. Locals renamed the town Blood Junction. India's car breaks down on the way, and she is offered a lift into Cooinda from a passing motorist. But when she arrives, Lauren is missing. And the next morning, India is arrested for Lauren's murder. On the run from a brutal killer and her own dark past, it is only when India allows her own demons to catch up with her that she can learn the truth about Lauren's death - and how it links to the massacre at Blood Junction all those years ago, and to India herself.

About Caroline Carver
CJ Carver was born in the UK. At 22 she went to Australia for a holiday and stayed for 10 years, working in publishing and travelling. In 1992 she took part in the London to Saigon Car Rally, where she and her co-driver were the only all-female crew on a 63-day, 12,500 mile journey. In 1993, she fell into freelance writing and since then has worked locally while writing and travelling. In 1998, she completed the London to Cape Town Car Rally, once again the only all-female crew. She blames her love of adventure on her parents: her mother set the land speed record in Australia and her father was a jet fighter pilot.
