Publisher Description

Shelter is a suspense thriller from award-winning author, Catherine Jinks.

Meg lives alone. A little place in the bush outside town – a perfect place to hide. That’s one reason she offers to shelter a stranger on the run from a violent husband. The other is that Meg knows what it’s like to live with an abusive partner.

Nerine and her two little girls are jumpy, but Meg assures them they’re safe now. Then she starts to notice things. Objects disturbed; strange noises in the night. Has Nerine’s ex tracked her down? Or has Meg’s husband come back to torment her some more?

By the time she finds out it’ll be too late – she’ll be running for her life. Catherine Jinks, Australia’s queen of irresistible narrative, turns her hand to the contemporary thriller – with breathtaking, nail-biting results.

'Shelter is an engrossing read that calls to be finished in one sitting.’ Books + Publishing

'Jinks knows how to dole out the tension, letting the suspense slacken and then ramping up the terror…’ Guardian

'Shelter is a propulsive thriller that is also distinctive in its plot, vision and style ... Masterfully developed.' Australian Book Review

    " Harlan Coben, you don't disappoint. I've been sort of stuck in a book rut, so Shelter was a breath of fresh air. Thrilling and enjoyable and suspense-filled. I've never read a Myron Bolitar book, but I've been saying I'm going to. Solid 4.5/5 stars. "

    " I liked everything about the book except the ending, which made no sense. It was as if the ending was taken from another book, or at least another time period, and yet I don't see many other people commenting on that, so I'm wondering if I missed something obvious. "

    " Just not my kind of book. A little too high-adventure, and teen Mickey Bolitar seems way too grown up for his age. A good listen from Brilliance regular reader Nick Podehl, though. "

    " I listened to this book so not sure if that would make a difference on not, I found it entertaining. However, I am not sure that the YA audience will relate to it. The characters fit but the voice and vocabulary seems a little off to me. "
