Review

India Kane is looking forward to her reunion with her best friend Lauren in the small Australian outback town of Cooinda. Before she reaches her destination, a good Samaritan who turns out to be an off-duty policeman picks her up. He drops her off at the place where she’s supposed to meet Lauren, but her pal is not there. India goes to the place where Lauren resides hoping to find her there.

After waiting overnight, Lauren goes back into town where she is arrested for the death of Lauren and the off-duty police officer who picked her up. She has an alibi but nobody can find him leaving Lauren in jail until a mysterious benefactor posts $250,000 bail. More death’s occur connected to the story that Lauren was working on and India, who is also a journalist, intends to discover what is going on or die trying.

BLOOD JUNCTION is the winner of the Crime Writer’s Association New Writer’s Award and it is very easy to see why. The story line is fast-paced and global in scope yet uses a local homicide to turn the plot into an international conspiracy. The heroine is a strong woman, capable of surviving on her own in the Outback as well as in the city and hopefully India will star in an ongoing series.
