Description

Georgia Parish never regretted leaving Nulgarra, Far Northern Queensland, to pursue her career. She didn't miss the oppressive heat, the wet, the bugs, the deadly wilderness. But after a plane crash she finds herself back there, struggling to comprehend a sinister fact - the plane was sabotaged. Was it someone hoping to kill Ronnie Chen, the man who never turned up to take the flight? Or is it to do with the two other passengers, unfriendly but heroic Lee Denham, and his frightened companion, Suzy? After all, nobody could have a reason to want Georgia dead...Georgia's search for the truth plunges her into a harsh and unforgiving landscape, across oceans and into crocodile-infested swamps. There, unable to trust anyone, she discovers that more than just her own life is at stake. Evocative, violent and shocking, DEAD HEAT is a fast and terrifying journey into the heart of one of the wildest places on earth.show more

About Caroline Carver

Caroline 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.show more
