Great story, believable but I would not want to be there. Also interesting descriptions of little known parts of Australia

This is the second book of the series. It is also the first one I started. It was like starting a book in the middle. I had no idea what was going on. I read for around 25 pages and started wondering if there was a prior book with an open conclusion, there was. Book one is free and you need to read it first for this one to make sense. There shoud be a note on the over view or book cover that this is book two. This is a rather dark and disturbing tale. Filled with violence, sex and pretty detailed. It is rooster, as well as chick lit. Rated R for adult content.. ages 18 and over. You need to read book one first. AD
