Anastacia Babchuk is not the kind of friend you would want to have. She kills people she does not like... And another thing, never call her Chook.

Harry Becker has fled to Wagga Wagga, in the heart of the Riverina, and bought a small farm, married a local mother of two and has set about building his idea of a rural paradise….

Until a man from the past turns up, and on the run from the Mafia…then a creep, known only as the Kid, arrives to make sure things go from bad to worse with ease.

And he is intent on killing Becker until Anastacia steps in to persuade him otherwise...

She is a cop from Canberra and out for her own type of revenge. The Kid killed her partner while trying to protect Evelyn Crowley. 

Amongst the chaos, retribution will be found, and scores settled. 

For Becker, the safety of his family is paramount. 

Amidst the mayhem, he knows an unimagined ending will come. 

And after all the blood washes away…maybe all returns to normal in paradise…Or does it?

“Great sequel to Evelyn Crowley by a talented author…hard to put down, edge of the seat thriller…awesome..!” William, Indiebook reviewer
