Deep in the Australian bush, Shannon Scott is holed up in a cabin with his brother, Rohan, waiting out the catastrophic effects of worldwide disease and a breakdown of global economies. After months of isolation, Shannon imagines there's nothing he doesn't know about his older brother, or himself - until a mysterious woman slips under their late-night watch and past their loaded guns. Denny Cassidy is beautiful and a survivor. Her inclusion into cabin life brings about the need for a new set of rules. Soon the brothers begin to look to her as a source of comfort, hope and intimacy . . . Or is her warmth just a trap? Could she actually be a cold tactician, a woman with a deadly agenda? 'Two brothers, one woman and a virus make Red Queen, an Australian apocalyptic novel, a compelling read.' Sunday Tasmanian 'Riveting, atmospheric and tautly written, Red Queen is a remarkable debut.' Michael Robotham Red Queen is a cracker of a thriller.' Vogue 'These characters are superbly drawn and Brown's manipulation of her stylish, erotic, unusual cinematic story firmly places this novel into the welcome league of the must-reads.' Courier Mail 'A prevailing mood of menace and threat in a frightening world make this first book a promising debut for HM Brown.' Sunday Telegraph
