Human experiments in Zimbabwe, an Australian farmer's death, and a Sydney CEO's suicide: these events are linked in the mind of one woman, Serena Swift. A ballsy advertising director with a guilty conscience, she decides to take on one of the world's most powerful producers of genetically modified food, Gene-Asis. Serena disguises herself to infiltrate Gene-Asis in an attempt to expose the company's horrific genetic experiments. But suddenly Swift's informants disappear, and she is hunted by a hired killer and framed for murder. Chased from Sydney to New York, she must face the man she fears most, on his own turf. If she fails, nothing can stop a global catastrophe. And nobody can help her - except a dead man.

Review quote

Quotidian logic is challenged in L A Larkin's Devour (...) This is the kind of unlikely but tense scenario that the late Michael Crichton specialised in; it seems that in Larkin he has an heir apparent. -- Barry Forshaw * The Guardian * This Antarctic thriller is a rollicking good read, with a true hero and fabulous accompanying cast * Vanda Symon (on Thirst) * Action that hits like an icepick in the back of the head * John Birmingham (on Thirst) * Deserves comparisons to Michael Crichton and John Grisham * ABC North Queensland (on Thirst) * A frantic rollercoaster of plot twists until the final resolution * The Herald Sun (on Thirst) * Olivia Wolfe delivers action and intrigue in spades -- Peter James
