Tony GibbsIn Alice Springs, novelist Nikki Gemmell has produced a compelling, hard-edged romance told in a style that's contemporary Aussie with an occasional overlay apparently derived from Aboriginal speech rhythms. (It may remind you of the voice-over in the Mad Max films.) Snip Freeman, a loner abandoned by her father, is an artist who steers clear of human entanglements, until she is left a substantial sum on the condition that she track down her missing parent. She buys a sports utility vehicle she can't drive and is forced to take on a partner - opening the first crack in her self-constructed wall of isolation. Snip's adventures in the outback are often harrowing and always exciting, providing an outlaw's view of the Australian desert wilderness - a view you won't soon forget.
