Debut - When journalist India Kane travelled from Sydney to the outback town of Cooinda for a reunion with her friend Lauren, she had no idea of the devastating series of events which would soon begin to unravel. For when India arrives in Cooinda, Lauren is not there - and the next day, India is arrested for a double murder . . . Set in the unforgiving landscape of the Australian outback, Blood Junction is a powerfully brooding and compulsive thriller about a woman on the run from a brutal killer and her own dark past - a past which is linked to Cooinda's own shocking history.
