Why would a man serving a long prison sentence escape the day before he’s due to be released?

Audie was sentenced to ten years for a Texas robbery in which four people died, including two members of his own gang. Seven million dollars have never been recovered from the robbery, and everybody believes Audie knows where the money is.

For a decade Audie has been beaten, stabbed, and threatened by inmates and guards, all desperate to know the secret. The day before he is due to be released, Audie suddenly vanishes. The hunt for Audie, and the money, is on. But Audie’s not running to save his own life—instead, he’s trying to save someone else. 

In what promises to be his most popular thriller yet, Michael Robotham has created the ultimate underdog hero, an honorable criminal shrouded in mystery and ready to lead readers on a remarkable chase.

  • “One of the best thrillers you will read this year.”

    Financial Times (London)

    Sunday Mirror (UK)

  • “Highly original…In a preface Robotham tells us this is ‘the book that I was meant to write.’ He could be right.”

    Literary Review

  • “An absolutely compelling story, with suspense ratcheting up to a deadly confrontation, combined with a deeply moving love story…Don’t miss this one.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “John Chancer’s narration skills keep the bullets whizzing in this on-the-run audiobook thriller. Chancer’s modulation and timing add vocal drama to the action—whether it’s a prison break, hand-to-hand combat, a shoot-out, or someone being smacked with a shovel…The production is paced so that each cliff-hanger unravels just as the next one is revealed, guaranteeing that you won’t hit the pause button until the full story is told.”
