NZD $22.99

Thrilling and filmic, powerful and compassionate, Quiver marks the debut of an outstanding new voice in contemporary crime fiction.

Kate McCall's husband has been killed by her teenage son, Luke, in a tragic bow-hunting accident. In the aftermath, Jack, a charismatic but troubled ex-con from Kate's past, shows up. When Luke takes off on his own for their rural Michigan cabin, Kate and Jack follow, but they're not the only ones hot on his heels. Two-time losers Teddy and Celeste, along with hitman DeJuan, are all looking to cash in on the money left to Kate. As they all head for the woods of Northern Michigan, events rapidly spiral towards a dramatic life-and-death confrontation.

Filled with unforgettable characters, razor-sharp dialogue and masterful plotting, Quiver displays the remarkable maturity and verve of a hugely exciting first-time novelist.
