Category: 
Crime Fiction

Set in New Zealand, Rat Bait is a tense thriller which follows the activities of Zack Garroway as he pursues a one-man crime spree after being released from prison. Being part of a small community has its drawbacks despite the lengths to which he goes to cover his tracks, and the local police are not as laidback as they appear.

As the net begins to close in, Zack goes to stay with his ex-naval uncle while the heat dies down, but Zack's complete disregard for society and individuals leads him into dangerous waters. An entertaining read with a dark twist.
