Why would a man serving a long prison sentence escape the day before he's due to be released? Audie Palmer has spent ten years in a Texas prison after pleading guilty to a robbery in which four people died and seven million dollars went missing. During that time he has suffered repeated beatings, stabbings and threats by inmates and guards, all desperate to answer the same question: where's the money?

On the day before Audie is due to be released, he suddenly vanishes. Now everybody is searching for him — the police, FBI, gangsters and other powerful figures — but Audie isn't running to save his own life. Instead, he's trying to save someone else's.

Michael Robotham has created the ultimate underdog hero, an honorable criminal shrouded in mystery and ready to lead readers on a remarkable chase.

What People are Saying About This

Stephen King

Life or Death is a nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels.
I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master. --Stephen King

Steve Berry

A pitch perfect plot with a stunning twist that involves a sheep in wolf's clothing. Talk about topsy turvy --- but it works — big time. --Steve Berry, author of The Lincoln Myth and The Jefferson Key

Lee Child

I love this guy's books. Try Life or Death and you'll see why.
