The Shawshank Redemption meets No Country for Old Men in the breathtaking standalone novel from international bestseller Michael Robotham. An exceptionally original and compelling thriller, and winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award 2015.

Why would a man escape from prison the day before he's due to be released?

Audie Palmer has spent a decade in prison for an armed robbery in which four people died, including two of the gang. Seven million dollars has never been recovered and everybody believes that Audie knows where the money is.

For ten years he has been beaten, stabbed, throttled and threatened almost daily by prison guards, inmates and criminal gangs, who all want to answer this same question, but suddenly Audie vanishes, the day before he's due to be released.

Everybody wants to find Audie, but he's not running. Instead he's trying to save a life . . . and not just his own.

Praise for Michael Robotham's writing:

'Will have you turning the pages compulsively'The Times

'Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them' Linwood Barclay

'Superbly exciting ... a terrific read' Guardian
