Life or Death

By Michael Robotham (Hardcover Book, 2015)
Why would a man serving a long prison sentence escape the day before he's due to be released?

Audie was sentenced to ten years for a Texas robbery in which four people died, including two members of his own gang. Seven million dollars have never been recovered from the robbery, and everybody believes Audie knows where the money is.

For a decade Audie has been beaten, stabbed, and threatened by inmates and guards, all desperate to know the secret. The day before he is due to be released, Audie suddenly vanishes.

The hunt for Audie, and the money, is on. But Audie's not running to save his own life--instead, he's trying to save someone else. In what promises to be his most popular thriller yet, Michael Robotham has created the ultimate underdog hero, an honorable criminal shrouded in mystery and ready to lead readers on a remarkable chase.

  • "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."

  • "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."  (author of The Lincoln Myth and The Jefferson Key).

  • "Robotham has a talent for creating fascinating and complex characters, and Audie Palmer may be his best yet." (Booklist (starred review)).

  • "Michael Robotham is the real deal." (David Baldacci).

  • "Robotham is a first-class storyteller." (Associated Press).
