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.
Michael Robotham has been an investigative journalist in Britain, Australia and the US. One of world's most acclaimed authors of thriller fiction, he lives in Sydney with his wife and three daughters.Review:
"I love this guy's books. Try Life or Death and you'll see why."―Lee Child
"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
"It has one of the great plots of the year...constantly unfolding and fabulously revelatory. It reads so smoothly it will make you forget about any turbulence you may encounter while aloft or about the traffic outside your minivan in the carpool lane. This is a great chase novel. We should celebrate it."―Alan Cheuse, The Dallas Morning News
"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
"Robotham creates fascinating characters and gives them wonderful dialogue."―Harry Levins, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Robotham has a talent for creating fascinating and complex characters, and Audie Palmer may be his best yet."―Booklist (starred review)
[A] prison-break tale with a twist . . . The writing is top-notch . . . Plenty of edge-of-the-seat excitement, forcing readers to frantically turn the pages to find out how all these different strands intersect. Robotham's skill as a writer remains undeniable: He offers memorable characters caught up in an irresistible story."―Kirkus Reviews
"Michael Robotham is the real deal."―David Baldacci
"Robotham is a first-class storyteller."―Associated Press
