About the book

Synopsis

He is waiting...
He is watching...
He will hunt her down.

Angel is on the run. Her mother is dead, her body buried in a shallow grave by her latest boyfriend, Scotty, a ruthless, illegal hunter who is prone to violence and who now wants Angel dead before she can talk to the police.

Angel has lived through more than a young girl should have but she's determined to stay alive.

But in the scorching heat of the open desert, where can she hide?

What the critics say

Relentless, heart-stopping suspense
- Kirkus Reviews

Price's pacing is tight, aided by direct, clipped prose that underscores Scotty's brutality and Angel's fragile emotional state. Both the best and worst of humanity shine through in this gripping novel
- Publishers Weekly

If suspense is your bag, this is a book to read
- VOYA

Price's fast-paced thrilling story paints a bleak and depressing picture of American 'trailer' life set against an unforgiving landscape . . . Revealing, raw and shocking but it's also moving, uplifting and totally unmissable
- Blackpool Gazette

Compulsively readable
- Books for Keeps

I was completely hooked
- South Wales Argus

. . . An exciting and suspenseful thriller with some important things to say about the human capacity for good and evil.
- School Librarian

Desert Angel is a seriously terrifying and tense story . . . I got very emotionally involved . . . I'd recommend it to both teen and adult readers.
