What you need to know before your trail

Single-mother bounty hunter Lori Anderson has finally got her family back together, but her new-found happiness is shattered when she’s snatched by the Miami Mob – and they want her dead. Rather than a bullet, they offer her a job: find the Mob’s ‘numbers man’ – Carlton North – who’s in protective custody after being forced to turn federal witness against them. If Lori succeeds, they’ll wipe the slate clean and the price on her head – and those of her family – will be removed. If she fails, they die.

With North due in court in forty-eight hours, Lori sets off across Florida, racing against the clock to find him and save her family. Only in this race the prize is more deadly – and the secret she shares with JT more dangerous – than she ever could have imagined. In this race only the winner gets out alive…

Travel Guide

Lori’s guide to Florida

Visit Florida

This is quite the ride around Florida! From Tampa to Miami via The Everglades and quite a few motels and dodgy car parks inbetween!

Lori sure knows her way around the state of Florida and it’s just as well as she’s kidnapped at one point and taken somewhere in a van so with her good sense of direction it’s not long before she’s back on the road and in control.

Much of the novel  is set on the road between Madison, fictional Missingdon which is a  blink and you’ll miss it kind of town we are told, settled between Waukeenah and Hampton Springs. So small, in fact it’s not on any real map, but drive along the highway here and read the book and you’ll see why it’s not there.


Such an iconic setting for any book and particularly apt for a trail into the unknown. When Lori is here, there’s a great sense of adventure, speed and a hunt for the truth and it all gets very hairy. Good thing is you can take a boat yourself and imagine you’re Lori. Minus the threats and the fear of course. Still watch out for the crocodiles though!

Lori’s memories of this place are somewhat more chilling than most:

“Despite the humidity, I feel a chill my spine and shiver. Memories whirl in my mind: Daokta screaming; JT out cold; a sinking boat,a rifle butt jabbed into  y ribs; blood in the water as gators feast of human bodies.”

The last time I visited the Everglades I damn near died.”

This is one of the most exciting parts of the Lori experience though – bombing through the glades on a boat dodging the crocs in the water and the equally nasty crocs of the human variety on dry land.
